The word "plankton" comes from the Greek planktos, meaning "wanderer." Plankton are a diverse group of organisms, both plant and animal, that live in the water column and cannot swim against a current. They are incredibly important in aquatic food webs, forming the base of the food chain and providing a food source to many large animals such as fishes and whales. Hear from VIMS graduate student Brandon Conroy about VIMS zooplankton research in the Amazon River Plume, while looking at preserved specimens, displays, and participating in fun activities!
