Synechococcus

These unicellular cyanobacteria are also known as blue green algae and, along with Prochlorococcus species, are responsible for a large part of the carbon fixation that occurs in marine environments. Synechococcus have a broader distribution in the ocean and are less abundant in oligotrophic (low nutrient) regions than Prochlorococcus. Some Synechococcus strains have evolved unique motility systems, using spicules (long filaments) that extend from the cell surface and act like oars during movement.
