P for Plankton

Did you know that 80 percent of all life on Earth is in the ocean?

Most of it is nearly invisible, and fragile, a world of Plankton, drifting and wandering. The smallest particles are plants, called phytoplankton, and the larger are animals called zooplankton. Life as we know it depends on this tiny world, not just for the ocean, but for the planet, because thanks to photosynthesis, phytoplankton produce more than half the oxygen on Earth. So, every other breath we take is a gift from the sea…

Yes, you read it: one breath out of two comes from the sea.
I bet you didn’t know that !

Scuba-love & plankton !
