Betta Keep Them Healthy: The Preference of Betta Fish in Regards to Their Food and Overall Nutrition Julian Olivo and Anaiah Santiago Antilles High School Abstract The purpose of this study is to find ingredients that betta fish like and make a fish food that bettas prefer over regular food with these ingredients. The research done in preparation of the study answers the research questions: what is needed to be done in the feeding of the fish, what are ingredients that betta fish can be fed, and what are the basics of proper betta fish care? This paper will cover the results of the experiment and the basics of proper betta fish care. Keywords: ingredients, betta fish, proper care Betta Keep Them Healthy: The Preference of Betta Fish in Regards to Their Food and Overall Nutrition Millions of betta fish owners throughout the world take care of their fish as if they were
Moreover, the total amount of toxins and debris discharged by human beings is incredibly increasing in today 's world. Most of the waste produced on land is either intentionally or unconsciously discharged into the oceans. Marine pollution and aquatic debris can utterly destroy the oceans causing extinction of the marine creatures. Innovative techniques should be implemented in the law to prevent the marine environment from any further damage. In order to improve the marine environment, the government and the Environment Public Authority of Kuwait should take immediate actions that can influence the society and help in minimizing aquatic debris and pollution.
Many countries like the United States have had over fishing crisis that have been resolved 1. Many countries such as Australia, Chile, Belize, Namibia, Denmark, and the United States, have faced similar problems but the fishing rights they have enforced have helped transform struggling fisheries. Which would be key for the lower status countries. 2. According to the Environmental Defense fund, “In the Gulf of Mexico, red snapper populations are three times what they were in 2007 when we helped reform that fishery” so if we use their methods many other countries might be able to re populate their fish.
During many years the tons of uncontrolled fish piled up in our markets and homes. To solve this situation and avoid the mislabeling and confusion we must create a system to control the other percent of imported food in order to avoid serious diseases. Loaded with mercury Since we were little kids we were thought that fish is good for us because it is rich in omega 3 fats which will do wonders for our health. Nowadays in this modern society where pollution has reached its highest point we can’t be sure that the food and especially the fish we consume are 100% healthy and clean. Tests conducted by Geological Survey have shown that tuna is high in mercury which may kill a person.
According to few reports Mercury contamination is higher in rivers and lakes. So these fishes are most likely contaminated with high mercury, which is toxic and venomous. Be Safe Against Seafood Fraud Again, it’s very tough again to find out whether it is safe to eat supplied Tuna or not, but few things can be practiced to cut down the risk of seafood adulteration. • According to Oceana, The place where you buy your fish matters a great deal. The greatest amount of frauds was found in Sushi Bars, it is approximately 76 percent.
However, as exploitation of the water increases limited or closed access is implemented and if exploitation still continues then this can lead to a closure of the water to fishing (EDF, 2015b). To avoid such exploitation RBM has become a popular choice worldwide to prevent exploitation. Governments and communities both see it as an effective tool to benefit the environment while keeping in mind fishermen’s economic interest. In most cases government is involved in RBM therefore RBM can be termed as a form of subsidy. If we were to recall the definition of fishery subsidy set forth by FAO it states “Fisheries subsidies are government actions or inactions that are specific to the fisheries industry and that modifies - by increasing or decreasing - the potential profits by the industry in the short-, medium- or long-term.
mainly talked about the Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing both in US domestic waters as well as high seas. IUU fishing impacts sustainable global fisheries, food security, marine ecosystems, and conservation and management measures that protect marine resources. According to NOAA, IUU fishing significantly affects multi-billion dollar US fisheries industry. Therefore, I think the speaker is addressing an important issue. I learned a bunch of new things from this presentation.
Consumer surveys have shown that evidence is mixed on whether people perceive aquaculture as giving rise to environmental and animal welfare problems, and it differs among countries and regions. In Europe, the focus on environmental risks associated with fish consumption is most pronounced in the northern and western countries, such as Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom (EC, 2008). In Norway, the public was found to be especially aware of environmental topics, owing to the particular importance of the aquaculture industry to their country (Schlag and Ystgaard, 2013). Interestingly, in Germany, overfishing raises more sustainability concerns than does fish farming. Thus
For thousands of years, people in the Pacific Northwest have depended on the annual migration of salmon. Salmon is a popular and healthy dish, and the commercial fishing industry is prominent there. However, recently, the population of salmon has drastically declined, mostly due to human-caused factors, including hydropower, habitat loss, harvesting habits and hatchery fish (Gore and Doerr, 2000, pp. 40-41). This decrease affects the ecosystems in which the salmon reside as well as puts the future of Pacific Salmon as both a species and a food source in danger.
(Ocean wealth) However, at the moment, humans are the ones destroying it. Human activities such as fishing, coastal development and urbanisation have been threatening the ocean for decades, affecting many marine species such as sharks, turtles, and even plankton .People cannot just keep taking from the oceans. It is time to give something in return. One really important marine animal that is threatened by human activities is the shark. According to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, sharks are some of the main predators in the ocean and have been around for more than 400 million years.
I can use this experiment in my paper to show how ocean acidification will shift the balance of the ocean. If certain organisms lose their protective shells while others become more dominant, the entire food chain system will be thrown off balance for habitants of the ocean and land. I can also use this experiment to show how ocean acidification can also be beneficial for certain organisms to strengthen my rebuttal section. This article will be useful because of its in depth explanation of the experiment and use of primary
