To control the overfishing and growing industrial fishing market, in 1977 the Canadian Government introduced a 200 mile management zone but by that time most of the ecological damage had started. However, during this time other industries like resource-extraction failed, which put pressure on the fishing industry and even the government had to encourage more catching of fish for exports. However, as stocks of cod fish continued to drastically decline the government finally decided to ban cod fishing in 1992. Though the cod fishing industry boosted the Canadian economy and provided employment for local
Zebra mussels were first discovered in 1988, in North America. Most scientists believe that they came to the Great Lakes on a cargo ship, specifically from ballast water, which is water that is carried in ships’ tanks to improve stability and balance. When ships use ballast water, plant and animals that live in the water are also picked up. These tiny shellfish spread rapidly around the area. However, zebra mussels have a negative effect on the environment because they eat tiny food particles that they filter out of the water, which diminishes food for larval fish and other animals, and causes aquatic vegetation to grow.
For many it’s a first pet, a gift from family, something you won as a prize at a carnival, but for Canadian residents the familiar orange goldfish everyone knows and loves is becoming a serious problem. Some flush them in a hurry because they no longer want to take care of them, others commit them to a porcelain vortex because they believe their beloved fish has passed, and the Canadian Government is issuing a warning now to citizens of Canada to stop flushing their fish. Just a few goldfish with the potential to disrupt an entire ecosystem Goldfish are entering the ecosystem the way that a lot of invasive species end up in an environment they don’t belong, Humans are putting them there. Human interference is one of the leading causes of the beginning of over population of invading alien species. In this case many of the fish are going down drains, and ending up in Canada’s lakes and rivers.
Zebra Mussels are invasive species who came to canada accidentally by ballast water ship.This invasive species arrived to canada at late 1980’s came to Ontario and Quebec and it first came to lake St.Clair and get speared to south to Gulf of Mexico and further speared to southern Canada.This invasive species Zebra Mussels is native Caspian region. Zebra mussels lay 1,000,000eggs per years. Zebra mussels are bad for Canadian environment because it eat all the food for fishes and then their will be no food for fishes to eat and then fishes will get extinct that’s cause fishes to extinct.It was first described in 1769 by a german zoologist name Peter simon
Emiley Fritz Water Bills in Poisoned Flint an ‘Outrage,’ Attorney General Says Michigan 's top prosecuting attorney said January 25, it 's an "outrage" that residents of Flint are forced to pay for water that is toxic. His office possibly will take action to put a stop to the toxic water billing. "Words can barely describe this tragedy. Things went terribly wrong," Bill Schuette said. "I would certainly not bathe a newborn child or a young infant in this bad water and if you can 't drink the bad water you shouldn 't pay for it."
Newfoundland was known for its Cod fish industry and the prohibition that followed since the early 90s. The dropping numbers of the Cod fish was escalating and it took a governmental standard ban to stop the excessive fishing, even though it was disastrous to the economy. The restriction on Cod fishing was considered a wise thing to do. With or without the ban on Cod fishing, there would’ve been a stop to the overfishing. Whether if it was by legislative power or just dead near extinction of Cod in North Atlantic.
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.
“We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment.” Many environmentalists believe this is true when it comes to businesses overruling the environment in so many cases. In the Japanese dolphin slaughters is a prime example of that. The dolphin slaughters are eventually going to cause an entire species to become extinct because they are killing around 20,000 bottlenose dolphins per year. Taiji, alone, kills more than 2,300 Bottlenose Dolphins during the hunting seasons (Glionna). Japan likes to say that they are only doing this for the dolphin meat and to sell the living dolphins; however, this is a false statement because there is little to no demand for dolphin meat (Miller).
The Everglades used to be a beautiful place that was home to many rare endangered species. But thanks to construction, agbusinesses, and draining the Everglades we have destroyed this one beautiful piece of land. To lead off, a mass increase in construction around and in the Everglades lead to a total destruction of it. In “ The Florida Everglades ” it says “ The construction cuts off the flow of fresh water to the Everglades.” Without the flow of fresh water to the Everglades fish wouldn 't be able to live, the Florida Bay wouldn’t be able to survive and we wouldn’t have clean water to drink. On page 113 paragraph 1 it states “ These wetlands were once home to many rare, endangered, and exotic species.
The cause of this was a nasty toxin called microcystin. Microcystin appears because of human pollution and fertilizers that flow into rivers and lakes which then lead to the ocean. Cancer-causing chemicals called PCBs and pesticides like DDT are in marine mammals ' fatty tissues and they cause serious harm. 2. Many health departments encourage people not to swim 72 hours after it rains because the coastal waters are polluted from urban runoff, leaking sewage from sewage pipes and overflowing sewer manholes.
They have social impacts, such as their endangerment of people and domesticated pets that are unaware of the risk they pose, and the blocking of drains and fouling of swimming pools. They also pose a health hazard as they are known to feed on human faeces, which means that they can acquire human diseases, such as Salmonella, and pass them on through their eggs. They impact the economy by placing a significant strain on the financial resources of land managers because of the ongoing need for research and management. Due to the decline in bush tucker species because of cane toad consumption, such as monitor lizards, snakes and turtles can affect Aboriginal communities culturally and economically. Lastly, there are ethical issues relating to the methods of collecting, euthanasia and disposing of the toads.
The consequences now is that Canada has 97 lakes, three oceans, and 62 rivers protected in comparison to the 32,000 lakes, and 2.25 million rivers before the bill was passed (Graveline, 2012: 295). This means that Canadian waters are not environmentally protected are therefore easily accessible to companies and the industry as a whole. With the history of oil spills, which is the industry that Bill C-45 is benefiting, the people nearest those population will feel the impacts of this bill the most. The most recent oil spill happened on April, 2011 documented to be the largest land spill in Alberta known as the Little Buffalo oil spill which affected Lubicon Cree community the most (Graveline, 2012:
