A STUNNING new photographic exhibition of organisms resembling something from a science-fiction movie will go on show at the Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port.
The display, which is called Mini-monsters and Micro-beasts, starts on Monday and features organisms, all under two millimetres long, found in the sea off the South West of England.
They have been photographed by Dr Kirby, a Royal Society Research Fellow at the University of Plymouth, and then printed at huge magnification to help explain how the plankton world works.
Dr Kirby said: “They account for half of the world’s photosynthesis and help regulate our climate. They also form a food web without which there would be no fish.”
