Introduction In order for a coral reef to be productive and healthy, the water quality in the ocean should be maintained. Water quality not only affects coral reefs, but the other organisms that live on it and are involved with the natural food chain. Some of the factors that can influence water quality are nutrients, temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, light, and chlorophyll present. Water is essential to every living organism because it helps with respiration, maintaining body temperature, digestion and provides energy. This experiment involved taking water samples from Ferry Reach off the BIOS dock and analyzing different factors to determine general conclusions about how water quality affects reef ecosystems.
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Authority (GBRMPA) responsible to manage Great Barrier Reef Marine Park for the best available scientific information for researchers to conserve the coral reef. GBRMPA responsible to increasing compliance focus to ensure zoning rule are follow, controlling crown-of-thorns starfish outbreaks, monitoring the health of the ecosystem on a Reef-wide scale and implementing Reef Recovery
gracilis population growth between the range observed by the previously mentioned studies. We intend to study how the external pH levels affect E. gracilis’ growth rate by altering the pH levels of their environment. Because of the varying results of these multiple studies, our question is, out of three experimental groups, which pH level yields the closest optimal external pH for population growth in Euglena gracilis? We hypothesize that E. gracilis will have optimal population growth at a pH level of 7.0 due to the fact that the organism’s natural environment, freshwater, has an average natural pH level of 7.0. The previous results of Danilov and Ekelund’s experiment attest to our hypothesis because the E. gracilis cultures grown in a pH of 7.0 had the best growth
Which they planned to improve and protect the water quality and living resources of the Chesapeake Bay estuarine system to restore and maintain the Bay’s ecological integrity, productivity, and beneficial uses and to protect public health. A group of professors, N. E. Bockstael, K.E. McConnell and I. E. Strand, from the University of Maryland Department of Agriculture and Resource Economics wrote an empirical article about “Measuring the Benefits of improvements in Water Quality: The Chesapeake Bay”. Addressing the question of the human values from the Bay. How do people use the Bay and how much are they willing to pay for the changes in water quality that improve their use?
Additionally, the feasibility of dealing directly with fisheries is addressed. Finally and outlook on where the industry is headed is given before recommendations are given regarding wild fish sourcing. Five drivers of change were identified and are listed below: 1) Customer Demand for Sustainability
Public health and ethnographic research are especially useful for tracking the availability, utilization, and acceptance of mental health treatments. 6. Process–outcome studies are especially valuable for identifying mechanisms of change. 7. Studies of interventions as these are delivered in naturalistic settings (effectiveness research) are well suited for assessing the ecological validity of treatments.
The article “The emergence and effectiveness of the Marine Stewardship Council” of Lars H. Gulbrandsen surveys how patterns of emergence influence the effectiveness of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), as one of the most important wild-capture fisheries certification programs, which was established in 1998. The main topics discussed in the article are the history of the MSC, the requirements for fisheries and barriers that the MSC had to face during the standard-development-process. In addition, it analyses the effect on fish stocks and several impacts of the MSC, as well as the adoption of schemes and some efforts of several labeling organizations to take over the spot from MSC. The starting point of the first eco-labeling initiatives
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.
Marine biology is the study of the ocean. It is a very interesting and exciting career to pursue in. to be marine biologist, there are a few things you have to know and be ready for. To be a marine biologist, you have to be able to work in different environments . In these paragraphs, you will be able to see how great of a career marine biology can be.
