Green seagrass doesn’t have to eat other living things; it makes its own food through a process called photosynthesis. During photosynthesis it takes carbon dioxide and energy from the sun and converts them into sugar and oxygen. Photosynthesis takes place in organ-like parts in cells called chloroplasts. Because seagrass makes its own food, it is a producer.
