I had always been passionate about biology, particularly marine biology. Throughout high school, I had studied for hours weekly in anticipation of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl. My role on my team was to obtain as much knowledge
Their aquarium helps many different species rehabilitate in their aquariums until they are ready to go back into the ocean and fill their niche in the environment. By nursing otters back to health and having them released back into the wild has helped the population stay in the thousands, “they 've slowly expanded their range and grown in number to nearly 3,000. As of 2014.” (Monterey Bay Aquarium: Sea Otter Article). The aquarium while also helping wildlife gain a healthy state on earth, they also of course, run an aquarium for people to view the animals in their
⦁ Squid: Most squid have very short life spans, also squid a prey for a wide varity of larger animals and their only defense is there speed and ink (sephia). ⦁ Oyster: Their only defense is there shells due to the fact that they don 't move. There considred a key species because their the pray for a wide majority of animals. What features observed will enhance its chances for survival? ⦁ Squid: Some can change color, some use bioluminescence to create light, and some shoot ink to cloud the water and lose predators, all these adaptaions will enhance their chance of survivale.
These creatures live in coral reefs for many reasons as I said before, for housing, for finding food and even for hiding from their predators. There are all types of different creatures with shining colors and surprising shapes. As I said before, millions of species live in and around coral reefs, for example sponges have been part of this ecosystem from early on. They provide shelter for many other creatures such as fishes, crabs, and many more small animals. They have also a very big variety of shapes sizes, and colors.
Once in the program students can choose one of three tracts to follow in which they can aspire to attain a master, PhD, or doctoral degree in marine archeology (“Admissions). “Underwater archeologists generally find employment in academia, state and local governments, and private organizations.” Full time permanent jobs are difficult, but not impossible, to come by. Those who do find themselves in a full time position as a marine archeologist will often be working to uncover a shipwreck, the most common underwater archeological site. Other types of sites include sunken harbors and docks, or coastal towns, cities, and dwellings (“Become).
(Demers and McKinley, 1996; Sammons and Maceina, 2005) The largemouth bass mating system is polyandrous, meaning the female mates with several males during one breeding season. During the breeding season, each male makes their nest is shallow water. Nests are usually very basic in design. After the male create the nest, they do the act of courtship, and then the female swims to the nest and lay her eggs in it.
After a plethora of studies made we know quite a bit about the ocean and the creatures that live there. We know who is the prey and who is the predator, what temperature some live in, and where they live. We know so much about the ocean and its inhabitants, but we also don’t know enough. There is more in the ocean than the things we’ve seen and studied. There’s things deep down in the ocean so deep that light from the sun doesn’t even reach it.
Fish can reach marketable size of 3 kg in 12–15 months. California yellowtail, Seriola lalandi proved to be a suitable candidate for marine aquaculture. Because the juveniles of California yellowtail are not easily available from the wild, hatchery produced juveniles are produced for aquaculture projects whereas the largest operations do exist in Australia. Aquaculture initiatives have been attempted in cages and land-based systems in New Zealand supported by hatchery-produced fingerlings. Japan is the key importer and consumer of California yellowtail whereas the species is also cultured and consumed as
When conducting research, a marine biologist “may spend a significant amount of time outdoors” (“What is a Marine Biologist?”). Since I enjoy the outdoors, this would be beneficial in making my job more enjoyable. On the other hand, orthopedic surgeons work in a hospital, particularly holding pre and postsurgical examinations in a medical room, and perform surgeries in a sterile surgery room. Orthopedic surgeons work 4-5 days per week, but could work 50-60 hour work weeks and must be on call for emergencies on their “days off” (Sheen 68-69). The discrepancies between the work environments of a marine biologist and an orthopedic surgeon are significant.
Fish are a major source of food in the United States. In order for hatcheries and fish farms to be able to provide fresh food for the dinner table, marine veterinarians are often called upon to help cure disease outbreaks or other common problems within large schools of fish. Aquaculture is a form of agriculture that plays an important role in the industry, as not only fish, but shellfish, crustaceans, and other seafood may require the knowledge of an aquatic veterinarian. The path to becoming a marine veterinarian is no easy task.
SeaWorld already carries out Rescue, Rehabilitate and Release missions. In April of 2015, 22 rehabilitated sea lions were released back into the wild by SeaWorld (City News Service, 2015). There are hundreds of cases just like this that happen at SeaWorld parks that very few people hear about. Most people do not know that SeaWorld has Rescue teams and centers.
“Sea Turtles Dig the Dark!” — that’s the message found on the bumpers of the turtle patrol roving vehicles parked in the North Shores Improvement Association garage bays. The old firehouse facility on First Street and Meadow Avenue is also the satellite home to the St. Johns County Sheriff deputies who patrol the area. Scott Eastman, director of Eastman Environmental, oversees volunteers monitoring the turtle population’s well-being between April and October every year.
Mako Sharks are unique animals, they are the fastest shark species we know of. Mako sharks have special characteristics to survive on their own. Their habitat is very diverse in all central oceans. They have adaptations to be able to respond to their surroundings quickly. The Mako shark species is about to go endangered and we need to protect them.
Biologist Elizabeth Flores Breton 's Interview Elizabeth Flores Breton, a founding biologist of EcoPlan 's sea turtle protection program in Cabo San Lucas, believes strongly in conservation and protecting our natural resources in rational ways. Breton was born in Mexico City but discovered Cabo San Lucas about two years prior to our filming and commented, "In this area, taking care of nature is critical because we have the presence of many horseback riding tours and people who come in on their vehicles; sea turtle predation in this area has been going on for years, and it is important to start a conservation program for these animals." Biologist Lara Cibeles, Leader of Planet Ecology and Conservation Camp Biologist Lara Cibeles, who
Exploitation of these essential fishes and pollution of the water could greatly destroy the bank systems and cause a rippling effect among the ecosystem. Knowing how important these bank systems are, they should receive additional protection through management zones. New management actions will help protect fish and stocks, to ensure the stability of recreational and commercial fisheries. To ensure a higher water quality and sustainable habitats, anchoring activities and vessel discharges will be restricted in the management zones. Some management zones containing sensitive wildlife habitats will be restricted to public
