Living deep within our oceans, lakes, and ponds are small animals known as zooplankton which typically rise to the surface of the water at night and sink towards the bottom during the day. This synchronised movement helps zooplankton avoid harmful ultraviolet (UV) light and escape diurnal predators that hunt during the day (Malloy et al., 1997).
