Chlorophyll-Containing Microorganisms in the Aphotic Zone of the Oceans
Abstract:Chlorophyll-containing phytoplankton organisms were collected from below the photic zone to 4,000 m in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and a number were cultured in enriched seawater in a light cabinet. Others were examined immediately after capture and gave the red chlorophyll fluorescence in blue-violet light (450 mμ). There is evidence that these organisms are autochthonous.
