Protein skimmer in a refugium

Quick question, Iíve set up a refugium for growing phytoplankton and other live foods for my display tank. I got several clams/mussels on my live rock. My question is will a protein skimmer skim out the phytoplankton if I put it in the refugium or in the display tank

It would be minimal. Pods and such things go through pumps and pipes all day long on all the other equipment. I wouldn't want it to go through a UV sterilizer though.
