    Explanation:

                     Algae is a group of a photosynthetic eukaryotic organisms that plays a very important role on the ecosystem. It forms the lower base of the food chain and supports all the life forms of the ecosystem. It takes up water and carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to prepare food during the process of photosynthesis and maintains a balance in the ecosystem.

                    In the context, if the algae disappears, the fish might die as the small fishes feeds on this algae. This is a concern as the algae is main component of food source and forms the base of the food chain. If there will be no algae there will be no life form on earth, as all species depend on each other to survive.

                      In order to prevent this from occurring, we must protect our algae. We must plant more trees, keep our water bodies healthy, we should not litter our ponds and lakes. We should also help these algae to grow and survive so that other life forms can feed them and thus maintain the ecosystem.
