Phytoplankton absorb Carbon Dioxide and release Oxygen. They produce as much Oxygen as all the trees in the world, and they remove 3 billion tonnes of Carbon Dioxide every year. – SAHFOS
hytoplankton are microscopic algae found floating and drifting in the upper layer of the oceans. They perform the very essential task of preparing food for those organisms which don’t have the means to do it by themselves. Phytoplankton achieve this by following the process of photosynthesis, in which they utilize sunlight and carbon di oxide to create food for themselves and for other marine organisms as well.
Ever wondered what the consequences will be if there were no phytoplankton left on earth!
