Depends on what type of marine environment the organism is dealing with. In eutrophic environment with high nutrients attaching to a stationary element would work because nutrients are plentiful and simple diffusion will bring nutrients. In an oligotrophic environment attaching to a mobile element such as an animal would make more sense because the larger organism will move towards food which in turn brings the attached organism food.
