The Caribbean Sea is renowned for its extraordinary biodiversity, and its zooplankton community is no exception. Zooplankton in the Caribbean, like in many other marine environments, comprise a diverse array of tiny, often microscopic, organisms that drift along with ocean currents. The region is home to an assortment of copepods, tiny crustaceans that are a fundamental part of the zooplankton community. Other common Caribbean zooplankton include larval forms of mollusks, jellyfish, and various types of larvae of marine worms and other invertebrates. Despite their small size, Caribbean zooplankton play a crucial role in marine ecosystems, forming the base of the food chain and providing sustenance for many larger marine organisms, including fish, sea birds, and marine mammals.
