Its body is slim and egg-shaped shaped in cross section. The corner of the mouth spread out past the eye, this is why it’s called the largemouth bass. (Bailey, et al., 2004; Boschung, et al., 2004) Young largemouth basses eats zooplankton and insects that is in the marine.
A sharks diet is very interesting. The biggest sharks eat baby fish, shrimp, plankton, and many tiny animals. Some sharks eat bony fish, squid, and can also be cannibalistic. They usually feed on smaller sharks. Great White sharks eat fish, and as they grow start to eat seals and walrus.
Despite all of the water pressure they’re under, lobsters still find time to dance! If you were to put on scuba gear and travel down through the miles of water to the ocean floor, what would you find? Well, apart from sand and other fish, you’d find lobsters moving forwards and backwards, performing their swaying lobster dance. This motion helps lobsters move through the water and quickly escape their predators. If they’re skilled enough dancers and can protect themselves from every threat, it’s believed that these creatures, who are part of the marine crustacean family, can live up to 100 years!
Rene Ismail McKenna - C 9th Grade Biology PBA American Lobster - Homarus americanus Ecosystem/Ecology of Homarus americanus Adult American lobsters tend to dwell in depths of below 50 meters. However, some can live at depths of about 750 meters. They can weigh up to 44 pounds and reach a length of about 25 inches, however they are typically around 2 feet long and weigh 3 pounds. The American lobster’s preferable habitat is on rocky surfaces covered with algae, because algae attract animals that the lobsters prey on. This habitat allows the lobster to hide within the cracks, where it can hide from predators in its environment such as flounder, cod, crabs and eels.
885 wahoo’s were examined and 53% of the wahoo had food containing primarily pelagic fish and squid. The most occurring food was frigate mackerel (Auxis thazard), porcupinefish (Diodon hystrix), and the flyingfish (Cypselurus spp.) (Manooch, 1983). They have also been recorded feeding on tunas, little tunny, dolphinfish, herrings, jacks, lanternfishes, scads, and pilchards. Even though wahoo is attracted traveling closely to floating debris or plants, such as sargassum spp., their diet makes them go out into the open waters and find food there.
The water dishes should be big and deep enough to allow the crabs to soak should they wish so, especially the saltwater. The dishes should also allow the crabs to get out easily and should not be very deep to prevent these creatures from drowning. Smooth river stones and pieces of coral can be used as ramps or steps to help the crabs get out of the water. It is also a good idea to place natural sea sponges in the water dishes because they regulate the humidity in the tank and the crabs press on them to get water to drink. Water given to the crabs and used in the tanks should be de-chlorinated and the saltwater should be prepared using marine aquarium
This is because in the passage "Animal Roles and Relationships" it shows how the hermit crab and the sea anemone work together to find food in order to survive in sea where their natural predators lurk just waiting to attack them. In the passage it stated, " In exchange for the free ride, the anemones protect the crabs from octopuses and other predators. "This quote shows that the two animals help each other in order to survive in the sea. The author stated, " Sea anemones also get free food by eating the leftovers from hermit crab fare." In this quote it tells how the sea anemones and the hermit crab help each other to get food in their ocean environment.
A structural adaptation is defined as “physical features of an organism like the wings on a bird”. This adaptation is correctly shown in the movie in many instances, when the turtles are swimming away from sharks it shows their flippers enabling them to move fast and when Sammy gets helped by the humans on land it also shows how slow sea turtles move when they are not in the
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.
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.
Lionfish were most likely introduced through the pet trade like the python. Although there is another theory that they were introduced by floating lionfish nest, it is rather unlikely considering that the nearest native range for them is the South pacific and the Indian Ocean around Australia and India. Lionfish were first reported off of Florida 's Atlantic Coast near Dania Beach in 1985. The lionfish 's habitat ranges greatly from 1 foot of water to 300 feet. It usually thrives in reefs but it is also easily found in hard bottom areas, mangroves, seagrass flats, and shipwrecks.
The Artemia Salina is in the order Anostraca, which means “no shell.” The Artemia often develop into large monocultures, the densities of which are mostly controlled by food limitation. Brine Shrimp are considered members of a single genus, which is Artemis. They can also occur in large
These fish live in the Pacific Ocean, but they are also found in the Indian Ocean, from East Africa to Micronesia, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) (2012). Their homes are the coral reefs that grow along the shores. These fish are very important to the lifecycle of the coral reef. They eat excess algae in the reef, which prevents the coral from suffocating (Frost 2016). These fish are somewhat social and are usually found in pairs or in small groups (10 to 12 members) of several different surgeonfish and tang (Bradford 2016).
