Without the primary productivity process means there will be no food whether it is for the plants or the other living beings. A combination of ice cover and reduced PAR (perhaps it was a cloudy day!) At the poles, a relatively high proportion of surface productivity makes it to deeper ocean layers compared to temperate and tropical regions. In the middle latitude oceans, productivity of marine algae increases during the spring because A.the amount of sunlight is increasing This also means that the ocean food chain will be altered.
