Alternative Oil Sources in Fish Diets - The intensive farming of tilapia, Oreochromis sp. is rapidly expanding and tilapias are the second most widely farmed fish in the world with annual production exceeding 2 million metric tons in 2005 (FAO, 2008).

Elizabeth Bishop’s “The Fish” - “The Fish,” written by Elizabeth Bishop in 1946, is perhaps most known for its incredible use of imagery, but this analysis does not merely focus on imagery.

After reading this statement, it causes one to reflect more in-depth about how the poem was written, and not just about what its literal meaning lays out. In “The Fish,” Bishop’s utilization of certain similes, imagery in the last few lines, narrative poem style, and use of punctuation allows the audience to transport into the life of the fish; therefore, allowing...   [tags: Literary Analysis, The Fish, Elizabeth Bishop]

Some people say that it happens every year between June and July. Others believed it only came when God blesses the town.

Achieving Ionic Equilitbrium in Marine Fish - ... Essential to intestinal fluid processing, and ultimately to intestinal water absorption, is the production of luminal divalent carbonate precipitates in the intestine of marine teleosts (Grosell, 2006; Grosell, 2011; Kurita et al., 2008; Walsh et al., 1991; Wilson et al., 2002). Luminal precipitate formation requires high concentrations of divalent ions and a chemically favorable high pH. The high divalent ion content required for precipitate formation is supplied by the high calcium content of imbibed seawater, that reaches the intestine in a concentration range that varies between 3-15 mM depending on the species (Fuentes et al., 2006; Genz et al., 2011; Wilson et al., 2002)....   [tags: water, fluid, absorption, intestine] 725 words

The Birth of Fish; The Death of Oceans - The Birth of Fish; The Death of Oceans Overview: Life and death are themselves opposites; then again in our oceans, life sometimes causes death. Over the past few decades, the demand for edible seafood has sky rocketed, resulting in the formation of aquacultures and overfishing. As of now, the two greatest threats to our marine resources result from overfishing and water pollution. Commercial fishing targets key fish species, resulting in an imbalance of the marine ecosystem. In response to the near elimination of these species, an industry has developed to raise these species in farm communities....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Currently the world’s population is around six billion people, and the demand for fish has never been higher.

Should the Risks of Fish Intake Override the Benefits? - Many consumers today are confused about the controversy about fish and its health effects. Researchers have discovered that fish contains methyl mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), and dioxins that may put one’s health at risk (“Harvard College”). The industrial processes cause mercury to be released into the air, then the chemical ends up in the lakes. Therefore, the contaminants come from bacteria that live in lakes that are then absorbed in species. When people consume fish, they are also taking in bacteria that came from unspecialized lakes indirectly through fish consumption....   [tags: Health ]

Implications of Emotional and Mental Capabilities of Fish on Welfare - Many of us have had a pet fish or two in our lifetimes; and most of us have eaten some type of fish in our lives. But for a long time it was believed that fish are not capable of emotions, such as fear or pain, and for this reason fish have been unethically exploited. Because of the belief that fish cannot feel pain or experience fear, not much concern is given to the welfare of fish or to the morality of how they are handled. This idea stems from the fact that fish lack the area in the brain, found in mammals, that is responsible for such emotions....   [tags: emotions, brain, biologists, ethics]
