Tychoplankton (Greek, "tycho," accident, chance)[1] are organisms, such as free-living or attached [4]

They are also known as accidental plankton or pseudo-plankton (compare: pseudoplankton), although "pseudoplankton" also defines organisms that do not themselves float but, rather, are attached to other organisms that float.
