Eating about two servings of fish per week provides healthy amounts omega-3 fatty acids that can help to lower cardiovascular disease. Although they have such great health benefits to us, we are putting many of the popular fish species we enjoy, such as salmon, tilapia and haddock, at risk for endangerment and environmental malpractice. There are many differences between farm raised and wild caught, but they both can be done in responsible manors that won’t harm the environment in an adverse way. It can be hard at times for suppliers to follow through with proper fishing technics especially when regulation is almost non-existent. Much of the shamming of improper fishing techniques is held against farm raised fish and the conditions in which they are raised.
Together, the alleles determine the offspring’s genotype. Determine the phenotype for that offspring. Repeat a total of ten times, once for each of the ten offspring. Keep track of your results in your lab notebook. b) In the data table, record the tally for each phenotype in the row marked “Simulated Number.” c) In the row marked “Simulated Percentages,” convert the simulated numbers (out of 10) to simulated percentages (out of 100%).
They accomplish this by feeding on algae and bacteria. 8 Species of mussels are native to the river. The most prevalent are the eastern elliptio mussel and the eastern lamp-mussel. Mussels are eaten by a variety of birds, turtles, fish, muskrats and other mammals. Zebra Mussels are an invasive species that can cause harm to native species by attaching themselves to their shells preventing free movement and can even cut off their oxygen

The droughts and increased heat has had negative impacts on local aquatic invertebrates. Aquatic invertebrates are adapted to survive in a particular range of temperature and habitat. But global warming makes it harder to survive. This could lead to the extinction of several species of aquatic invertebrates which in turn would lead to serious consequences of the ecosystem. Many of the aquatic invertebrates are responsible for keeping the ecosystem clean by feeding on litters.

This, in turn, can affect habitat quality for plants and animals that live downstream. Biodiversity may be lost if aquatic plants and animals cannot tolerate changing water conditions. When large volumes of water are pumped from a stream or river, water chemistry can change significantly with a drop in water level. Temperatures may rise and oxygen levels may drop, affecting aquatic species that don't have a wide tolerance. Biodiversity may also be reduced if invasive species, such as the zebra mussel or golden algae, are introduced into a waterbody during the drilling process.

The great lakes are a way of transportation for people as well as products carried on cargo ships. Now cargo ships have to make more trips than would be necessary if the water levels were higher. This cost a lot more money that could go to other important issues. I understand that the water levels are lower because of evaporation. However scientists have seen this coming since the 1990s.
2. Do background research – Utilizing at least one scholarly source, describe how variations in dissolved oxygen content in a body of water can affect fish populations. Answer = “Oxygen depletions are the most common cause of fish kills in ponds. (Aquaplant, 2014).” Based on my observation of the chart and what I read, the higher the dissolved oxygen levels the number of fish drops. Dissolved oxygen levels can also cause fish to suffocate and be more susceptible to diseases.
