The northern snakehead preys on zooplankton, smaller fish, fish larvae, crustaceans, frogs, insects, small reptiles, and even small mammals and birds. In the areas in which the northern snakehead has invaded, native populations are having gradual decreases because of the northern snakehead’s unextinguishable appetite. The most notable features of the northern snakehead fish are its snake-like characteristics. The fish has a long cylindrical body with the blotchy coloration and patterns of a snake.
The Great White Shark The Great White Sharks, known mostly because of their white underbellies, are one of the most powerful aquatic animals in the world. They can swim at about 25 Miles Per Hour (40 Kilometers per hour) because of their strong muscles and forceful tails. In addition to that, male Great Whites can grow around 11.5 to 13.1 feet long, while females can grow from 14.8 to 16.4 feet long. This paper will demonstrate how Great White Sharks are an important part of their ecosystem, how their diets work and will adequately describe their habitats. As predators in their ecosystem, Great White sharks help maintain the coral reefs and seagrass habitats.
Hammerhead sharks rarely attack humans. Only 17 atacked have happened in the last 450 years but none of the attacks were serious enough to be fatal. The animal i'm going to be comparing the hammerhead to is a bottlenose dolphin. The dolphin doesn't chew its food it just goes down the throat like a snakes. I think that the dolphin would be a better survival than the hammerhead because they live in a lot more places than the hammerhead.

The great white shark is being hunted for their fins, teeth, and as trophies for sport fishing. This is not their main threat however, because they are usually caught as a bycatch by large commercial fisheries.
ea otters are an essential keystone species in a marine ecosystem. They help to keep down herbivore populations to keep kelp happy and they keep sea urchin populations down. Sea otters are mammals that live in oceans often around california kelp forests. They live in chilly waters but have no blubber (Picky Eaters, p.1). Instead they have a thick coating of fur.
Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine. Sharks are very at-risk for over-fishing because they take a long time to reach the stage where they can reproduce and in general only have a few pups when they give birth.

For example, they make shark fin soup with Mako sharks. To protect the Mako Shark species, they are protected by U.S. waters(Beardsley, 2015). Mako sharks are fascinating animals.
Marine organisms are animals, plants, and other living things that live in the ocean. A Marine biologist is a scientist who studies marine organisms and studies the bodies, behavior, and the history of marine organisms. They also study how marine organisms interact with each other and their environment. I have chosen to research about Marine biology because I would like to learn about sea life, the ocean, and its surrounding environment. To start off, a Marine biologist might study coral, crabs, fish, microscopic marine organisms, sea stars, seaweed, squid, or whales.
