- The Zooplankton Project - Zooplankton are small animals living in the open waters of ponds, lakes, and oceans. Most zooplankton eat algae and serve as food for small fish. In freshwater, the dominant zooplankton groups are rotifers, cladocerans, and copepods. This site contains numerous photographs of representative genera of cladocerans and copepods from the south-central United States.
