A new study showed that ocean warming and acidification is decreasing the abundance and fatty acids composition of copepods, resulting to a decrease food quality for fishes.
A species of copepods named Temora longicornis has developed a liking and resistance to poisonous algae that can make them do weird things... that may actually lead to their deaths.
El Niño phenomena is causing less rainfall in different areas including the Jellyfish lake in Palau. Because of the lack of rain, the lagoon becomes saltier driving both plankton and the jellyfish away.
Researchers recently unearthed two new plankton-eating fossil fish species, of the genus called Rhinconichthys. This discovery triples the number of known species.
Harvard researchers examined how downstream effects of flooding for hydroelectric development would affect local communities in this area. They found that increased toxins could devastate food supplies.
Jellyfish provide easy access to hunting grounds for some sea birds, since they attract small fish to hang around their tentacles in exchange for plankton.
Using a new and gentle processing system via robotic submarine, and going to within a meter or two of the ocean floor, scientists have gathered the first high-volume collection of the ocean's building-block organisms.
A rare and mild-mannered shark, the second-largest fish in the world, was accidentally caught by a trawler off southwestern Australia, and donated to science.
A toxic algae bloom is spreading along the West Coast, and it may be the largest one scientists have ever seen.
A hormone that governs sleep and jet lag in humans may also drive the mass migration of plankton in the ocean, according to a new study.
