Survival of the fattest

This video is available in Dutch only.

Peter Mooij collects water. He always has a bottle or test tube with him to be able to scoop some water and take it with him. He is a algae researcher. There are very many different types of algae. Almost all water contains a few. Even in a glass of tap water you will find some swimming around. You might not see them, but you can be quite sure that they are there. In his algae collections Peter hopes to find the fattest algae on earth.
