Ocean research expeditions have diverse teams including scientists. One of the types of scientist on board is marine biologist. They study animals and other living things that are found in the ocean. Their work helps us understand how all the different animals are linked together and also what might affect their health. Working in the deep ocean is exciting as she sometimes discovers new species that no one else has ever seen before!
As a marine biologist in a research expedition, you need to understand how deep sea life is connected. Play this game with a friend, parent or carer to learn about some of the living things seen on Nekton's first mission investigating the deep ocean around Bermuda, Sargasso Sea and the North West Atlantic.
Try making a food chain from the different animals depicted on the Deep Sea Life cards.
Start with one of the living things that shows a zero feeding level, ie marked with four blank circles. This is a producer.
Then find a primary consumer that relies on this producer for food. Primary consumers are marked with one full circle out of four.
Next find a secondary consumer and so on.
What’s the longest chain you can make?
