The illuminated zone of coastal and oceanic waters is inhabited by a great diversity of
tiny, usually single-celled, microscopic algae known as phytoplankton. Like all plants,
phytoplankton utilise sun light, water, and dissolved CO2 and nutrients to grow and
reproduce. Phytoplankton usually occur at densities of a few hundred to hundreds of
thousands of cells per litre of seawater. In favourable conditions the concentration can
increase to several million cells per litre which may become apparent as algal blooms.
