So While I’m aware of ecosystems, and probably more of those on land, I must say I’ve never heard of a neuston. It is, as this article states, a zone that is just above and below the water’s surface.

The article is entitled “The neuston is a floating ocean ecosystem, and our plastic cleanup push could threaten it” by Starre Vartan  over at the Mother Nature Network. After reading the article, I realized I was sort of familiar with this ecosystem before, I just didn’t know it had a name.
