An Ocean View: an interesting fact about ocean water

For this week I thought I’d pass on long-winded posts and descriptions and instead offer you a quick fact about ocean water!

In one drop of ocean water, you will find, roughly:

  • 300 non-photosynthetic protists
  • 300 Eukaryotic algae
  • 300 Synechococcus bacteria
  • 3,000 Prochlorococcus bacteria
  • 30,000 of diverse bacteria
  • 3000,000 viruses
Crazy, eh?
