Zooplankton can feed on cyanobacterial blooms

Cyanobacterial blooms were until now assumed to be unpalatable for zooplankton and to sink to the sea floor. However, a new study unravels that small, rarely studied zooplankton, rotifers and ciliates, fill an important role in the Baltic Sea by grazing cyanobacteria blooms, moving carbon from phytoplankton to fish.
