How Fishing Makes You A Better Person?
If you are into fishing, you probably know more about wildlife and aquatic animals than others, consider this.
If you have studied the world of marine biology, then you will know that the organisms in that ecosystem are linked intricately. They need each other for survival which means that they are all dependent on each other for certain things. In the absence of even one of the constituents of the food chain, the entire system is liable to collapse as it would violate the natural order of things.
What are marine mammals? Marine mammals include a large number of animals like seals, whales, manatees and sea otters. Usually found near the top of the food chain, it is evident that they play a very important role in keeping the aquatic ecosystem working properly. Marine mammals can be found anywhere from freshwater to open-ocean which gives them immense power to operate.
Factors: It is not easy to understand in depth how the effect marine mammals have underneath the sea because it is rather complicated. Unless certain information is available, it is not possible to fully comprehend the dependency. The following factors are responsible for determining it.
Overall consumption by marine mammals: One needs to know how populated an area is with marine mammals and their energy requirements to figure it out. Keeping track of temporal changes in their diet will also be helpful to get a complete view of the situation.
Prey population: Since marine mammals find their prey in the marine ecosystem, it is essential that we know the ratio between prey and predator in a particular region. Being able to predict changes in the behavior of the mammals regarding the abundance of prey, energy expenditure to acquire the prey and their own nutritional needs will equip us with better analysis tools. Even though marine mammals are identified primarily identified as the dangerous predators, the truth is that their role is not just limited to it. And even predator-ship itself can lead to a chain of reactions that would have otherwise not taken place. How can they cause changes?
