Transcript of Pacific ocean ecosystem

Pacific Ocean Ecosystem
Phytoplankton (Producer)
Algae (producer)
Algae is also a producer. It takes sunlight and turns it into food. Because it is a producer it has the greatest energy source in the food chain along with the other producers.
Kelp (producer)
Kelp is also a producer that gets its energy from the sun. All theses plants/ producers provide food for many animals like turtles and clams
Phytoplankton such as diatoms are producers. Phytoplankton are basically a type of algae, so they serve as plants in a food web. This organism gets its food/energy directly from the sun and provides many organisms with energy.
The Sun
The sun is one of the main abiotic factors in an ecosystem. It is the source of all energy because it provides energy to the plant. It is a very important abiotic factor in any ecosystem.

Zoo Plankton (consumer)
Zoo plankton are primary consumers. This means it is the one who eats the plants first, only, and directly. This gives other animals energy like anchovy's and lantern fish
Shrimp (consumer)
Shrimp is a small crustacean like lobsters and crabs. It eats phytoplankton and algae.
Water is a very important part in an ocean ecosystem. It makes the whole ecosystem. On top of that fish use their gills to "breathe" in the water.
Clams are omnivorous consumers. The eat phytoplankton and kelp. It also eats zoo plankton.They give energy and food to starfish.
Clams (consumer)
Anchovy (consumer)
Anchovy's eat zoo plankton and shrimp. They are eaten by many fish. They also eat plants like algae and kelp.
Goose foot starfish feed on animals like clams. They provide food to animals like whales and rays.
goose foot starfish (consumer)
Baleen whales (consumer)
Baleen whales are whales that, despite their size, eat small animals like krill, plankton, and crabs.
The Moon Jellyfish like most jellyfish have stingers to attack their prey. Jellyfish eat small fish like anchovy and shrimp. They are eaten by sharks and other jellys.
Moon Jellyfish (consumer)
The black dolphin is a dolphin that's diet is primarily based on anchovy's and starfish. If attacked large sharks will eat it.
Black Dolphin (consumer)
Blue Sharks are about 12 and a half feet long weighing about 450 pounds. They like to eat squids, if there are no squids they will eat jellyfish, dolphins, starfish, fish, whales, and even garbage floating around.
Blue shark (consumer)
Decomposers are the organisms that break down the final remains of living things. Decomposers are important in freeing the last of the minerals and nutrients from organics and recycling them back into the food web.
Nassarius snails (decomposers)
Food chain #1
The sun -> phytoplankton -> zooplankton -> anchovy -> mosaic jellyfish -> nassarius snail
Food chain #2
The sun -> algae -> shrimp -> goose foot starfish -> bull shark -> nassarius snail
The "->" stands for the flow of energy
