Remember they live in water and the water is polluted and that affects them alot because they could die. Water pollution is one of our problems on the earth. SHARK S COULD SICK TOO BECAUSE THE FISH THEY EAT AND THE FISH THEY EAT , EAT TOXINS AND THAT AFFECTS THE SHARKS AS WELL AND DIE. Their aren't any laws or policies of this predator but i think their should be laws . there should be a law if a human uses sharks for food, resources and abuse should get 5 months in jail and maybe
He is a consultant for Shark Defense. Shark Defense is a research company developing semiochemical, magnetic, and electrochemical repellents to reduce shark interactions.1 He says that you are more likely to be hit by lightning than to be attacked by a shark.2 Research says that you are more likely to drown in the ocean than to be eaten or killed by a shark. The sea itself is more dangerous that the sharks living in it. So why are people so afraid? Sharks often create images of strong teeth and huge long bodies swimming through the ocean looking for prey.
The Great Hammerhead Shark Sharks are one of the most feared sea animals. They live in oceans across the world but are most common in tropical waters. There are over three hundred fifty species of sharks. They can be broadly categorized into the following four groups: Squalomorphii, Squatinomorphii, Batoidea, and Galeomorphii. The shark family Sphyrnidae that includes the Hammerheads are a part of the Galeomorphic classification.
“Whale Wars” is a show about a conservation society who protects whales in the southern ocean from the Japanese Whaling Fleet who hunts whales to sell the meat illegally on the Japanese Market. The Fin Whale is located worldwide from the North Pacific to the Southern Pacific to the Indian, Mediterranean and the Arctic Oceans as well as the Southern Antarctic (WWF, 2007). The Pelagic Zone is where the Fin Whale lives and is a coastal species sometimes living in shallow waters(WWF, 2007). It feeds through the baleen plates in taking large amounts water filtering it through its mouth to in take fish, krill and squid(Harrison, 2005). When it feeds on schools of fish it often lunges sideways in taking the school within several lunges.
Taking into consideration the fact that one can never really do "too much" to benefit a situation as such, Lake George and it's officials, as well as it's local inhabitants, could be doing a lot more. Most importantly, there is a sufficient lack of public education and awareness at local marinas about the precautions needed to be taken when boating in "zebra infested" waters. Boating, diving, fishing, and numerous other water activities contribute to the spread of zebra mussels, as a means of there survival includes strongly adhering themselves to hard surfaces submerged in the water, such as boat hulls, scuba diving equipment, and fishing gear. Because of this, local marinas should enforce proper decontamination efforts. Unfortunately, from personal experience, I can vouch for that fact that these efforts are commonly overlooked.
Galapagos tortoise subspecies that eat grasses that lie close to the ground have shells that are dome-shaped with the rim of their shell lying snugly above their neck. Galapagos tortoise subspecies that eat leaves that are above the ground on bushes and shrubs have shells that are saddle-backed in shape, with the rim of the shell arched upwards enabling them to crane their neck high in the air as they grasp their food. Freshwater turtles such as snapping turtles are ambush predators. Too cumbersome to swim after their prey with any great speed, snapping turtles instead tuck themselves into a bunch of aquatic vegetation and snap at anything that comes within their path. Consequently, snapping turtles eat fish and crustaceans.
The first reported sighting of a lionfish in the Florida Keys was January of 2009, but it is believed that they could have been here for much longer. According to Ann Dornfeld, a writer for National Public Radio, during Hurricane Andrew, in 1992, a personal fish tank containing about a half-dozen lionfish was smashed. The lionfish from the tank were accidentally released into the ocean. They then spawned and the lionfish took over. According to a news report by Dan Rather, “The estimated millions of lionfish now in these waters can be traced back to less than ten original female fish.” This is believed to be the first introduction to the south Florida waters, but now civilians continue to release these fish from their home aquariums when they become too large for the tank, or often
Levels much below 7 cause moulting and shell hardening problems in yabbies. Low calcium levels (hardness less than 80ppm) has the same effect. Behavior Yabbies can be aggressive and cannibalistic under certain conditions. High survival and good growth can still be achieved when some form of shelter is available. Although redclaw are less aggressive, shelter is still required to achieve uniform growth rates, as large crayfish dominate small crayfish.
The dolphin can defend its self but with the skills of the shark, it’s not rare for the dolphin to fail. But also targeting a single adult dolphin can be also dangerous for the shark of similar size. Certain killer whale populations may also prey on dolphins, but this seems rare and others may swim with dolphins. The EXACT estimation population of the bottlenose dolphin is not known. But there is much different estimations.
Since dolphins communicate by sonar, this noise frightens them because it is an abnormal sound. The dolphins try to escape but the fishermen herd them into the cove and block their escape route with layers of fishing net. some are captured and sent to aquariums, amusement parks and interactive “dolphin encounters" worldwide. “The dolphins are speared, hooked, hoisted into the air by their tails, and finally eviscerated alive. The methods, say researchers, result in a long and painful death for these intelligent marine mammals,” says an article in Science Letter.
