Although fish are among the many wonders of the sea, they are also very useful on land. Seafood is one of the healthiest proteins, and, because of the wide variety and types available, fish is often the main course in healthy meals around the world. Finally, fish are peaceful as well as beautiful a... ... middle of paper ... ...g pole, a fish can say goodbye to any future he had of playing in the water. A kite seen gliding in the wind, its long tail stretching out toward the ground below, and a fish flipping his tail back and forth as he swims beneath the sea, are both brilliant to watch. The spectrums of colors that can be seen on each are beautiful shades of every color in the rainbow.
I remember that day so clearly, rocking back and forth, up and down, I sat on a small glass bottom boat. The enormous ocean waves making me nauseas as I put my snorkel gear on. I hurried as fast as I could, knowing my nausea would go away as soon as I entered the water. This wasn’t the first time I have gotten sea sick, but it only shows up when the boat is sitting still. As soon as I got my equipment on I jumped into the water, fins first.
Jellyfish are very delicate and abnormal creatures and their appearances give off alien-like qualities. On an island called Eli Malk is Clear lake, a ‘golden pool’ full of ‘golden jellyfish’ (Jacoby). These jellyfish have been there for millions of years without evolving. Reason for this is because the lake is in a cut off location and have off the chart high nutrients causing these jellyfish to be completely harmless (Jacoby). People often visit Clear Lake to go swimming with the delicate creatures, enjoying the sight and excitement the scenery of jellyfish bring.
He is searching for something different and of a lot less color. The turtle weaves his eyes through the fields of coral and stops when he catches a blotch of yellowish brown. This blotch of brown will certainly prove to be a satisfying snack for our turtle today. He swoops in with the elegant speed, that one could expect only from a turtle, and begins his feast on the succulent sponge stemming from the crevices created by cracks in the coral. Yes that brownish yellow blotch that was so intriguing was indeed, sponge.
We started to touch them and the starfish had such a unique texture. Afterwards, we washed our hands and headed outside and joined a line that was heading into a big, blue tent. We went inside and we were both surprised and excited to see tons of different-looking and sized stingrays swimming graciously throughout the pool. Everybody leaned over and reached their hand in the water, hoping that their hand would touch a back of a stingray. At first, I was scared to put my hand in the water because I didn’t want to accidentally touch the tail of the stingray even though they removed the barbs so they couldn’t sting you.
Our lures were as well. Their lustrous, metallic surfaces became dull and oxidized. They began a whole epidemic in our tackle boxes, spreading their gritty growths to even those lures that hadn’t come into contact with salt water. To save the small remainder of healthy lures, we were forced to adopt the tedious and time-consuming, foreign culture of bathing them in freshwater and keeping them in a clean, quarantined box. Conclusively and strongly stressed to the naive freshwater fisherman, freshwater fishing can shockingly differ from saltwater fishing.
To use the lure effectively, it is necessary to accurately portray what the name implies, a wounded minnow. A fish, like any other creature, is aware that wounded prey is much easier to catch and will find the temptation of an easy meal overwhelming. This means doing away with the standard method of casting a lure and immediately and steadily reeling it back in. To start fishing with a wounded minnow, find the shallow fishing spot you prefer and sit just close enough so that you can cast your lure into the area.
Most of the coral appeared as if it was an enlarged kitchen sink sponge. They close up when predators get to close to them to protect themselves. Surrounded them were tiny, bright colored fish. The fish arranged from small blue tangs to large parrot fish. My dad and I finally finished and swam back to shore.
It took them another four years to discover what the upper lensed eyes do. The first big clue was a free-floating weight at the bottom of the rhopalium that ensures that the upper eye is always looking upward, even if the jellyfish swims upside down. If this eye detects dark patches, the jellyfish senses that it’s swimming beneath the mangrove canopy, where it can find the small crustaceans that it eats. If it sees only bright light, it has strayed into open water, and risks starving. With the help of its eyes, this brainless blob can find food, avoid obstacles, and survive.
Located northwest of Unguja, the island stretches 8 kilometers, and is encircled by a gorgeous reef. The island and waters surrounding it are mostly untouched, so you can easily spot healthy, vibrant corals clinging to the reef. There is also an abundance of tropical fish swimming through the clear waters of the Indian Ocean. You will need a permit to snorkel here, but if you take a snorkeling tour, they will have a permit that applies to the entire boat. If you have exhausted all other opportunities, then you can try some Zanzibar snorkeling at Kendwa Reef.
