Nutrients are released from the decomposition of seaweed and distributed widely by tides and currents. These nutrients are used by phytoplankton, which in turn are eaten by both zooplankton and filter feeders such as barnacles and mussels. Fish and filter feeders eat zooplankton. Sea stars eat filter feeders and fish. Birds or mammals eat smaller fish.
