Cruise lines dump wastes because they get lesser costs and lesser time to dump their wastes instead of having proper sewage management control and equipment following the legal standards. Certainly, there are other reasons why cruise lines dump wastes in the ocean. As this is an ethical situation, the
Being an invasive species that cause significant economic and ecological damage to the lake, it was apparent that affirmative action had to be taken. After close examination of the actions currently underway, a prominent question comes forth. Are the current efforts and methods used for the eradication and control of zebra mussels in Lake George sufficient for the protection and continuing preservation of the existing ecosystem? Personally, I think they are not. 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.
Everybody should know how to hunt and/or fish and grub to survive should they survive a catastrophic natural disaster, but then at the same time it should be illegal for people to sport hunt and fish for trophies. Everybody should know how to hunt and/or fish and grub to survive, should people survive a catastrophic natural disaster. Roberts wrote, “If your area is hit by a devastating natural disaster, such as an earthquake or tsunami, access to food can shut down fast” (Roberts, n.d.). Those who know how to hunt and/or fish and grub would be better off to provide food than people that do not know how to do anything. Nunn wrote, “You may be surprised to learn that according to the government, most cities and urban areas have only a three day supply of food and water.
At its current rate of decline, the countries of the world may be forced to add the Atlantic Bluefin Tuna to the protected species list. Unfortunately by then it may be to little to late. Save the Bluefin Tuna The bluefin tuna is in danger of being overfished to extinction. The popularity of sushi and sashimi has made the bluefin tuna one of the most profitable fish to sell on the open market. This paper will explore the food which has driven up the cost of the bluefin tuna as well as four of the methods in which the bluefin tuna is being harvested from the ocean and sold for profit.
This argument claims that the number of amphibians in Xanadu National is experiencing a decline, which was attribute to the introduction of trout. By this conclusion, the arguer cited two evidence, one is the decreasing number of observed amphibians, and the other is that trout feed amphibian eggs. These two evidences, however, are not sufficient to indicate a downward trend of amphibians quantity and the trout’s damaging effect. To examine the correctness of this argument, an initial question needs to be answered is that wheter the observed decline is a signal to show that the number of amphibians are truly decreasing. Since the author did not provide any evidence about observing process and statistic arriving standart, it is hard to count on the accurateness and reliablenss of the observation.
Jessica Porter Specific Purpose Statement: To inform the audience about endangered whales. Thesis Statement: I will inform my audience about the threats endangered whales face, and how they are being protected. Introduction Attention Getter: How many whales do you think are killed each year? Well, in the 2007–2008 seasons, over 1,500 whales were killed. Since 1986, 31,984 whales have been killed (Whaling).
These ecosystems provide important links between land, freshwater and marine environments, as well as feeding and breeding grounds for many marine species (Great Barrier Reef Coastal Ecosystems). Any changes to or loss of these coastal ecosystems from human actions disturbs the ecology of the Great Barrier Reef. The framework of the reefs is formed by coral polyps that live together in colonies inside the coral. Besides the polyps, small fish and other organisms use the Reef as protection from predators. However, coral coverage on the Reef has fallen nearly 50% between 1985 and 2012 (Great Barrier Reef).
ARE FISH OILS OVERRATED? Summary Public interest in healthy living is increasing across the world, sparking a huge demand for the supplements market. However knowledge of biological roles of fish oil supplements is not widely known and so cheaper and lower quality made supplements which otherwise seem ‘value for money’ are unlikely to offer health benefits that combat many risk-factors of modern day diseases or deficiencies as would those supplements that have been molecularly distilled to extract impurities and maximise concentrations of the eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (Bailey, 2009). Another important factor to highlight is that omega-6 fatty acids work in combination with omega-3 fatty acids and this balance also needs to be maintained. This study is about highlighting the risk-factors of fish-derived supplementation and what dosages are best to help fight pathological diseases of the cardiovascular, immune and neurological systems, and if these levels are in all fish oil supplements that are currently on the market or is the use of these fish oil supplements overrated and of little effect, evaluation of the products on the market was reviewed and compared to known scientific benefits of taking the natural fish oils in a diet.
It generally takes at least three kilograms of feed to produce one kilogram of salmon. The shrinking of the numbers of prey species threatens the entire food chain, putting further stress on large predator stocks. Depleting fisheries also negatively affects the economies of developing countries, home to nearly 60% of the world’s fishers that are classified as small-scale commercial or subsistence fishers. In Africa, an estimated 100 million people depend on fish from inland sources, such as lakes and rivers, for income as well as protein and much-needed micronutrients like vitamin A, calcium, iron, and zinc. But coastal fisheries across West Africa have declined by up to 50% in the last 30 years due to significant pressure from large industrial fleets.
The Effect of Climate Change on Leatherback Turtles Each year thousands of leatherback turtles, scientifically known as Dermochelys coriacea, lose their lives. It is estimated that only 1 in 1000 hatchlings survive to adulthood. Perilous circumstances have led to their addition to the endangered list. With lives fraught with a constant battle of survival, these aquatic organisms contend with predation from birds and anthropogenic activities including over harvesting and pollution. They now confront, what many specialists believe to be their biggest threat, climate change.
