Highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) are a subgroup of fatty acids characterized by chains of 20 or more carbon atoms with multiple double bonds, which potentially limit the growth of zooplankton. Zooplankton require high HUFA concentrations during periods of rapid growth, but co-limitation with nutrients is also likely to occur. Recent modelling results suggest food webs with high quality (nutritional and biochemical) primary producers can attain inverted biomass distributions with efficient… CONTINUE READING
