The interaction of plankton and suspended sediment in fjords in Sedimentology of fjords.

Abstract

Trace metals, organics and nutrients that are adsorbed onto suspended particles affect the supply of these materials to phytoplankton and zooplankton. Fecal pellets are important in fjords, an aqueous environment that is dominated by the vertical flux of suspended sediments. Pelletization also allows the transport of undigested food to greater depths providing an important source of organic material to benthic sediments and food to deep-water organisms.
