Beth Larson of the Center for Coastal Studies presents “Phytoplankton – Cirque du Soleil in Cape Cod Bay!” on Wednesday, January 28 at 7 pm at Napi’s Restaurant, Provincetown.

Phytoplankton are microscopic marine plants, and like terrestrial plants, they require sunlight in order to live and grow. In a balanced ecosystem, phytoplankton provide food for a wide range of sea creatures including larval fish, shrimp, snails, and jellyfish.

Beth Larson will explain why these miniscule organisms are vital not only to the marine ecosystem, but to us all.

Beth has been a research assistant in the Ecology Department at the Center for Coastal Studies for five years.  She currently studies both the zooplankton and phytoplankton of Cape Cod Bay. Although Beth spends winters in the lab, you may very well meet her during the summer at the CCS kiosk on MacMillan Pier, where she works to promote ocean literacy to both residents and visitors.

This presentation is part of the Center for Coastal Studies’ Winter Lecture Series, which is supported by Napi’s Restaurant at 7 Freeman Street in Provincetown. Free, all welcome!

Participants are encouraged to arrive at 5 pm and enjoy Napi’s special early bird dinner!
