Evolution Domain: Eukarya Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Actinopterygii Order: Perciformes Family: Centrarchidae Genus: Micropterus Species: salmoides The normal weight of the largemouth is one kilogram. On the other hand, certain largemouth basses have gotten to be over ten kilograms in weight. The males usually does not get longer than 40 center meters, while the females can get to be 56 center meters long. The largemouth bass has a big, but somewhat slanted mouth. Its body is slim and egg-shaped shaped in cross section.
They have well-developed and symmetrical gills over which drawn water flows. The flow of water carries the waste and reproductive products. Movement: Although abalones occur in the same place, they may use their muscular foot with its suction power to move, cling and stay tight with the substrate surfaces. Feeding habits: In nature, abalone eats marine algae with a particular preference to large brown algae such as giant kelp and other kelp species. While juvenile abalone grazes for algae, diatoms and bacterial films, adults rely on drift algae, and if food becomes scares, they move after their food.
Barbeled Dragonfish Scientific Name: Grammastomias flagellibarba Common Names: Deep Sea Dragon fish, Scaleless Dragonfish The barbled dragonfish is a deep sea fish located at depths of 5000 feet (Deep Sea Dragonfish. (n.d.)). The barbled dragonfish also has a size range of growing between 4 and 6 inches (Deep Sea Dragonfish. (n.d.)). They inhabit tropical ocean regions (Deep Sea Dragonfish.
Its first dorsal fin has around 23-27 spines while the second dorsal fin only has nine finlets. It has a lunate caudal fin (Carpenter, 2011). It also has 12-14 anal soft rays but no anal spine. A very elongated jaw is seen. The mouth is very large with a beak-like snout (figure 2).
Cephalopoda Introduction: Invertebrate animals which belong to mollusks which means “head foot” and characterized by large head and modified feet. This group includes octopuses, squid, cuttlefish and nautiluses. Members of cephalopods are characterized by their ability to quick change their color as well as changing the texture and shape of their bodies as a means of camouflage. Today there are about 800 living marine species of cephalopods which are found in all of the world’s oceans, from the tropics to the near freezing water at the poles. Description: The name cephalopods which means head-armed were given this name because these animals have several arms around their protruding mouth.
Swift, strong, stealthy, and fascinating, sharks are marvelous fish. They are well known for their incredible sharp teeth, and vicious behavior. Sharks are extremely unique and an essential part of the ocean and sea ecosystem. There are over five hundred different types of sharks living in the world. Sharks can be divided into two main groups, large and small.
Atlantic Bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) Introduction: The Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is a pelagic and schooling fish that is also known as the northern bluefin tuna, giant bluefin tuna. The species is the largest member of the Scombridae family and one of the largest bony fishes. Bluefin tunas are known to swim long distances and usually at high speed of up to about 1.5 knots and can also dive as deep as about 900 meters. The average lifespan of bluefin tunas is 15-30 years with up to 50 years for very large specimens. Description: Atlantic bluefins are dark blue to black blue above and silvery underneath with a gold coruscation covering the body and bright yellow caudal finlets.
Common goldfish can grow up to approximately 12 inches in length which is larger than some of the containers the juveniles are kept in. They also produce a good deal of waste as they grow. Fancy varieties usually stay smaller than common goldfish, but their fancy fins are inclined to develop finrot in dirty water. This makes the lack of a filter problematic.
The aquarium would include many of the same abiotic/biotic factors, such as the same plants, same temperature, and similar water quality. The fish would either be fed their natural food, provided it is sourced sustainably, or an easier, healthier, and more eco-friendly option. As there are no threats, such as invasive species or predators, the population would flourish. When there is a decent amount of individuals who can reproduce (in order to maintain the population) you can capture/ harvest as many as needed. There is an array of humane methods to kill fish.
Cuttlefishes Introduction: Cuttlefish are small to medium sized marine animals that belong to the class Cephalopoda, which also includes squids, and octopodes. Despite their name, cuttlefish are not fish but they are molluscs. There are more than 100 species of cuttlefish which significantly vary in size from the small ones of about 15 cm in length to the Australian giant cuttlefish which can grow to up to about 50 cm in length (excluding its tentacles) and about 10 kg in weight. Based on research findings, cuttlefish have one of the largest brain-to-body size ratios of all invertebrates indicating that cuttlefish are among the most intelligent invertebrates. Distribution and habitats: The family Sepiidae, which contains all cuttlefish, is found in shallow temperate and tropical waters.
Polar Skuas usually live up to 11 years on the other hand an Albatross can live to about 50 years, but can live up to 80-85. The Snow Petrel have webbed feet that help them to swim swiftly and smoothly across large amounts of water looking for food. “Raptor of the South”, Albatross are known to be the most majestic of all the Antarctic birds with a total of 21 different breeds in the southern hemisphere. Albatross have a large head with a sharp hooked beak.The male Polar Skuas have a tendency to be smaller and lighter than female. For the migration the Polar Skuas will cross the equator and go into Alaska or the
There are some reports of people catching super big goldfish in Lake Tahoe. The weight of these goldfish is about four pounds. The length of these goldfish is 18 inches on record. There is a possibility that some goldfish are 2 feet long. So far nobody knows how many goldfish are in the lake.
These birds were listed as endangered on March 11, 1967 and also rely on the basin for crayfish to eat. In addition to birds, plenty of fish can be found in the basin and fishermen frequent the basin in search of Tilapia (3). Tilapia can be found by the hundreds in the basin along with corvina and an occasional striped bass, mullet, croaker, or sargo (3). The endangered pupfish, though rare, also rely on the basin for survival (10). Pupfish are also the only native species in the Salton Sea, thriving in shallow bodies of water with a high salt and heat
The Dakosaurus is a very interesting animal and there are a lot more facts about them. The Dakosaurus ' was in the Metriorhynchidae genus. The Dakosaurus ' were carnivorous and they lived in the ocean. They had a unusual way of eating their prey, they would "open their mouths like a suction cup that would suck in many fish and animals". The age expectancy of them dying is unknown.
