Warming Oceans Leading to Extinction of Some Plankton, A Vital Marine Food

Warming Oceans Leading to Extinction of Some Plankton, A Vital Marine Food | Lauri's Environment Scope | Scoop.it

Cod and hake are not the only marine animals affected, of course...

Lauri's insight:

Humpback whales (like all baleen whales) are seasonal feeders and carnivores that filter feed tiny crustaceans (krill - mainly Euphausia superba, copepods, etc.), plankton, and small fish (including herring, mackerel, capelin, and sandeel) from the water. They are gulpers (not skimmers), filter feeders that alternatively swim then gulp a mouthful of plankton or fish. Concentrated masses of prey are preferable for this method of feeding. An average-sized humpback whale will eat 4,400-5,500 pounds (2000-2500 kg) of plankton, krill and small, schooling fish each day during the feeding season in cold waters (about 120 days).
