Overview of data collected from research ship paths through the north Pacific Ocean measuring the phytoplankton species Prochlorococcus with an instrument called Seaflow. Additionally, results from the Darwin global ocean ecosystem computer model show interactions between Prochlorococcus, a copiotrophic heterotrophic bacteria and a shared grazer that limits the poleward extent of Prochlorococcus.
