It's not a conversion question. A formula can probably be constructed, but it depends on many different things. Without knowing your problem in details nobody will be able to help you.
See
http://sergey.gershtein.net/blog/2006/1 ... -foot.htmli have a ratio of plankton/dm cubed : fish/m squared
If you know the depth of the layer where both fish and plankton live, you could convert
plankton/dm cubed into
plankton/dm squared by muliplying the value by the depth of the layer in dm. Then you'll only need to convert dm squared into meters squared here:
