  • Research Paper On Ocean Pollution

    The oceans are suffering far more than the general population realizes. People tend to view the oceans as an indestructible force simply because they are so vast. This mentality is what is destroying the oceans. Marine pollution is causing failure in the reproductive systems of aquatic animals. Marine pollution is causing the coral reefs to shrink. Oxygen levels in the ocean are decreasing on a daily basis. Ocean temperatures are rising. Animals are ingesting large numbers of plastic and toxic waste. All because of…

  • Shrimp Aquaculture

    2.2.1.1 Temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen After extensive studies, several authors have mentioned certain physical, chemical and biological parameters of water and sediment as important for the aquaculture of marine shrimps. Along with dissolved oxygen, water temperature and salinity are considered as significant parameters because of their close association in aquatic ecosystem (OSPAR, 2005). The maximum water temperature recommended by Nunes et al., 2005 and ABBC, 2005 was 32°C,…

    creating a limiting potential for plant-growth in marine ecosystems. This explains its encompassing effect on the surface of affected water system, as observed in the Watershed Nature Centre. In addition, this can be observed from the site as less quantity of phosphorus get dissolved in running water compared to the amount that eventually gets into the water column. Temperature: The water surface gets heated up by sunlight, increasing the water temperature. It is noticed that increase in…

  • Lack Clean Water In Developing Countries

    on streets and sidewalks, and most importantly fertilizer from gardens. Water pollution is caused by animal and human feces, urban runoff, chemical spills, and the over-application of fertilizer. Fertilizer contains phosphorus and once phosphorus comes into contact with water, the health of the entire aquatic ecosystem is affected. An overabundance of phosphorus will create an algae bloom, where a rapid increase in algae population accumulates in the water. Once the algae die, harmful…

  • Ecosystem And Terrestrial Ecosystem

    ecosystem and aquatic ecosystem can be differ to several aspect which are growth rate, nutrient availability, and size structure. In term of growth rate usually related to the producer. As we can see in terrestrial ecosystem, the main producer is plant that plays a very significant roles in order to sustain the growth population. Basically, plant producing their own food by undergo photosynthesis in the help of sunlight energy. The next trophic level which is herbivore will consume it and…

  • Using Permaculture Principles When Designing A Pond

    Marginal plants, can be decorative as they can help blend the edges of the pond into the surrounding ground, but also provide shelter from the wind and the rain. Because they grow on the edges of the pond, they also serve as a barrier for fish and other aquatic animals from possible predators. Some examples of edible marginal plants are, Vietnamese Mint, stonecress, and rainbow parsley. Oxygenating plants, have roots submerged in the soil, but their leaves unlike with the floating plants are…

  • Habitat Destruction

    Most threats facing animals and plants at present can be linked to human influences. Habitat destruction is the greatest contributor to the extinction of species. Human actions which threaten biodiversity can be divided into two categories, deliberate actions and unintentional actions. Many habitats for example, swamps, wetlands, forests and other habitats get destroyed for human consumption and industrial gain. By destroying habitats, many different animals face death because they no longer…

  • Animal And People Mind Analysis

    Class discussions included a range of topics from common fish living in the local watershed to the importance of water clarity. These discussions are key to understanding how a fish or other aquatic organisms behave when in an environment that is not clean. Research done in areas such as Lake Tahoe showed that invasive species can affect the water quality and make it unable for fish to survive. This is due to invasive species having the same diet as fish. The most interesting part of this…
