In the marine environment the entire food chain/web recieves it’s energy from the bio molecules synthesised by tiny microscopic plants known as micro algae or Phytoplankton.
They utilise photo synthesis in the same manner as with more familiar land plants.

Phytoplankton play a vital role in nutrient cycling.
They absorb excess nutrients such as Ammonia, Urea, Nitrates, Phosphates and Potassium as well as some metals, Iron, Copper, Manganese, Zinc, Molybdenum and Vanadium.

By the removal of excess nutrients, Phytoplankton help to maintain water quality and regulate PH.
It could be said that Phytoplankton is a living bio filter.
Grown in store.
Not for human consumption

As well as a water conditioner and food, Phytoplankton has been found to supply less understood benefits.
Theraputic, almost antibiotic- like effects have been reported on fish and other marine animals.
This may be a clue to compounds expelled by the algae itself rather than by the removal of nutrients and chemicals from the water.
Phytoplankton will feed and help to increase the biomass of Zooplankton within a marine system, such as Ciliates, Copepods, Rotifers, and some marine Shrimps which are considered essential for the survival of some fishes and inverts.
