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).

Most people think keeping fish is an easy hobby because all you have to do is buy a tank and the fish to put in the tank, but they are extremely wrong. Fish are very hard to care for, and they are also very temperamental to changes within the tank. Fish require constant care and a watchful eye of the water conditions in the tank. If the water condidtions in the tank are not set up properly, or if there is a spike or sudden change in the water conditions it could cause the fish to become sick or even kill the fish....   [tags: fish keeping hobby]

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. Instead, it is based on a quote by Mark Doty from his essay “A Tremendous Fish.” In it he says, “‘The Fish’” is a carefully rendered model of an engaged mind at work” (Doty). 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]

My Mother Is a Fish

- Death is most commonly portrayed as the end of life, or for the sake of depth, a permanent termination of all vital functions. This appears to be a fairly simple concept and, whether or not they understand it, people eventually accept it because it is inevitable. Humans find it difficult to define death; especially when it is so closely associated with life as well. Some define death as the moment when life concludes, while others define it as when the condition that follows life begins.

Therefore as expected fish decrease in abundance, and species diversity. This trend is prominent as in order to survive the harsh conditions of the deep sea, fish need a number of specific adaptations....   [tags: Marine Evolution Sea]

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]

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]
