A food chain shows how each living thing gets energy from food and passes that along to other specie. A food web includes several different food chains and shows how plants and animals are interconnected. The marine food chain starts with phytoplankton, mainly algae. Phytoplankton is consumed by floating animals called zooplankton; they vary in size so the smaller zooplankton are eaten by larger zooplankton. Zooplankton are eaten by small fish; small fish are eaten by larger fish. What comes next in the food chain? Discover the rest of the marine food chain through these web sites.
