Our primary finding of increased plankton biomass in the deep sea suggests that energy transfer efficiency from phytoplankton to intermediate and higher trophic levels has been underestimated, and that global carbon models need to account for the large portion of oceanic primary production that zooplankton is likely respiring in the deep-pelagic realm.
