Usually killer whales prey on about 30 species of fish. On average, a killer whale eats 227 kilograms (500 lb) each day as it needs lots of food to sustain itself. Killer whales hunt in a very strange way called carousel feeding. They force fish into a tight ball by releasing bursts of bubbles .They then slap the ball with their tail flukes, either stunning or killing up to 15 fish at a time. The fish are then eaten very slowly, usually one at time. However Carousel feeding has only been documented in the Norwegian killer whales and some dolphins who live in the ocean.Sharks can also be the part of this whale’s diet. Killer Whales may herd them to the surface and strike them with their tail flukes. Killer whales can induce in sharks and rays
The bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) or also named Zambezi shark. The bull shark starts its life when its mother gives birth to about one and thirteen per liter. The mothers give birth around between late spring and early summer. When mating the male nips at the back of the female and grasps one of her pectoral fins in his mouth, this usually leaves a scar for the female called courtship scars. They are immediately on their own and separate from each other. Reproduction with bull sharks doesn’t happen until they are about 10 years old. They are said to be able to live to up to about 25 years. Bull sharks can be found from so many different areas such as worldwide warm waters, shallow waters, and in rivers. They can be in saltwater and in freshwaters.
Salmon play a vital role in the economy, culture, and environment of the Pacific Northwest. They form an important part of Native Alaskan tradition and are a traditional food staple in many communities. Salmon are also the base of one of Alaska’s three primary industries, commercial fishing. Commercial fishing is one of Alaska’s largest industries, the others being the tourism and oil and gas industries. Salmon also have a big impact on the environment, supporting many different types of wildlife. Unfortunately though, the salmon population has fallen drastically and since 2007 salmon runs have been decidedly below average.
High School Fishing Club High schools offer extracurricular activities, clubs and sports for students to help them become involved in their school and develop team building and leadership skills. Some types of clubs offered by schools include Pep Club, SADD Club (Students Against Drunk Driving), Chess Club, and FFA (Future Farmers of America), just to name a few. More and more schools in the country are creating a fishing club. The question that arises is how long will it be until fishing clubs are offered at every school in the country?
The stickleback fish have gained much attention from evolutionary biologists because of their historic ability to adapt to conditions that were not favorable and to survive successfully in them. They are also able to give researchers insight into how evolution occurs in other organisms. The stickleback normally spawns in freshwater but lives in the salt-water ocean. Long ago when ice melted and receded, the fish were given new possible places to inhabit and they did, expanding their spawning locations to newly formed streams. Eventually, though, the streams were cut off from the sea and the once salt-water sticklebacks were faced with the problem of being stuck in freshwater with no way to get out.1 The presence of sticklebacks in freshwater lakes today shows that somehow the fish were able to still survive even though they were in unfavorable conditions. The question is: how did they do it?

Endangered Native Atlantic Salmon: Salmon Presentation Project (Not a Final Draft) Salmo salar, most commonly known as Atlantic Salmon, was once native to almost every freshwater river connected to the Hudson River. Due to what people have treated salmon during their history, many species have been endangered and even extinct, this includes the Native Atlantic Salmon. When people first came to Maine, Atlantic Salmon was the main source of food to eat. The population was still very steady then, but it wasn 't until the early 1800’s that populations decreased.
Lake Superior by its surface area it is the world’s largest freshwater lake. Out of the Great Lakes it is the deepest lake of them all. Lake Superior also contains 10% of all the freshwater supply on the earth. Lake Superior also contains more water that all the other great lakes by a lot. There also is enough water to flood North & South America by a depth of 1 foot.
Lesson 11- Students were able to explore the NASA website and the solar system. By doing so, students found data in scientific notation and were able to make connections to science. In an upcoming science unit, students will be researching a specific planet so this lesson provided an quick
INTRODUCTION Water is a transparent and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth 's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms. Water plays an important role in the world economy. Approximately 70% of the freshwater used by humans goes to agriculture. Fishing in salt and fresh water bodies is a major source of food for many parts of the world.
One of the leading causes for reefs to be endangered is due to the invasive lionfish. The lionfish’s impulsive eating habits are threatening our sea life of the reefs and decreasing our fisheries economically. According to Lionfish Hunters, the green side includes the cleaners that maintain the health of the reef and the health of other fish such as “grazers.” The grazers are the parrotfish, goatfish, wrasses, surgeonfish, and tangs. (The Lionfish Hunters, web.) These fish help clean the algae that grow over the reef, lowers the algae levels to support enough oxygen for coral to grow, and to establish efficient space for baby coral. There are three main ideas of how we as a community and as a nation can attempt to eliminate lionfish: spread
I can’t believe what just happened! Today, my goldfish died! About 2 weeks ago I won little bubbles at a carnival. As long as I have lived I have begged my parents to get a goldfish! That day was the happiest day of my life. I spent 5 hours thoroughly customizing bubble’s bowl and spent 30 minutes searching for the most nutritious fish food out of all of the local pet stores. Mr. Bubbles and I played all day long. We even developed our own language and communication. When he blew a Bubble, it meant he was saying hello. When he swam in a circle, it meant he was hungry. I protected Bubbles with my life. You see, my dad had this cat named Squeezle. Squeezle couldn’t get enough of watching Bubbles. Instead of television, Squeezle and I were entertained
