Lobsters are crustaceans that have been on earth for more that 480 million years and their average lifespan is 70 years. Their scientific name is Homarus americanus. The word lobster is an old english word that means spider. Lobsters are benthic creatures that are found in all of the world’s oceans, brackish water, and freshwater. A lobsters brain is located in its throat and its teeth are in its stomach. They have poor eyesight but an amazing sense of taste and smell. They mainly feed on fish, clams, sea stars, sea urchins, mussels and sometimes even other lobsters. Scientists have two theories on lobster cannibalism. The first theory is that rising water temperatures are causing lobsters to be more aggressive. The second theory is that lobsters
In “Where Have All the Exploiters Gone? Co-Management of the Maine Lobster Industry”, author James M. Acheson validates Garret Hardin’s logic in “Tragedy of the Commons” that property rights do in fact help conserve resources. Acheson also refutes basic principles set forth by Hardin that users of open access resources have no vested interest in preserving resources over the long term and are unable to generate regulating mechanisms.
The Callinectes sapidus also known commonly as the Maryland Blue Crab, is a crustacean found in the Chesapeake Bay. The blue crab is found in aquatic environments, most often in estuaries. It characterized by it’s blue claws. The blue crabs undergo a life cycle of: zoeae, megalop, juvenile, and adulthood. The blue crab’s hard shells serve as a protective barrier for external dangers. The Callinectes sapidus comes from the order of Decapods, whereby it’s carapace has now evolved to be better suited for swimming. Of interest is the blue crab’s mating

And the total area of Maine is 35,385 square miles, also known as the biggest state with the most land from the original 13 colonies.
Another article about the higher temperature on the oceans. According to this article, New England’s lobsters is increasing above the normal average. The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission reports that this phenomenon is a result from the higher temperature under the oceans. They inform that higher temperature lead to speeding up their metabolism. When the water may get too warm, it is put the animals under stress. The writer is Carl Zimmer, and explained about the reason of the un-normal increasing of the lobsters in New England. That can prove that climate change has a big impact on the marine life. The article is support my research that climate change cause an extinct of the marine creatures, by using the Atlantic States Marine
In the essay “Consider the Lobster”, David Foster Wallace communicates his experience in the Main Lobster Festival as a writer for a food magazine called “Gourmet”. In this essay, he explores the impact the festival had on him as he tries to question the morals of eating lobsters. Wallace initially makes it seem as the festival is a place of fun and celebration as he describes the entertainment: concerts, carnival rides, lobster-themed food, lobster-themed clothes, and lobster-themed toys (50). In spite of that, he changes his attitude as he observes that the festival is actually promoting cruelty to animals and holds a long discussion whether or not lobsters can actually feel pain. Through the use of his language and description, Wallace convinces the audience as he claims to persuade the reader to stop eating lobsters, but he doesn’t explicitly say so at any point in the essay.
Imagine that a huge wave crashes down on you. Then it drags you back into the ocean. On your way you pass by an animal that is clinging on for dear life. In order to survive in these harsh conditions, animals need adaptations. An ecosystem is a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment. The California Spiny Lobster lives in the neritic e zone which is in between 200 meters and 0 meters. It is located on the continental shelf. They like living in coral reefs and the ocean ground. In order to survive in the neritic zone with predators, sea floor hiders, and other environmental threats, animals need adaptations.

Aside from butterflies, we have the Northern Beach Tiger beetle which is a tiny, sand colored beetle that lives on sandy beaches throughout the middle and lower Chesapeake Bay (Chesapeake Bay Program).
The consumption of meat over recent decades has become more than just a means of nutrition for the body, but also a game of hunting animals for recreation and sport. Along with the popularization of hunting animals for sport came the early endangerment and extinction of certain species. With this hobby the question arose, is it ethical to hunt and or eat meat? After reading “Consider the Lobster” written by David Foster Wallace, a person may consider the history any meat goes through before it is ready for consumption. However, the consumption of meat is seen as a normal thing to do on a daily basis, especially in America because our meals are typically centered around the meat being the main item of the meal. After reading “Ethics and the
In The Oyster Question, Christine Keiner utilizes environmental, agricultural, political, and social history perspectives to investigate the Maryland oyster industry and its decline throughout history to answer the question if the oyster industry should be privatized. She offers opposing viewpoints from scientists, politicians and local community members. She has managed to connect scientific history with environmental history with local history to bring together a comprehensive overview of the problems both past and present of the Maryland oyster industry. I think that Christine keener does an excellent job, not without its flaws, of laying bare how science and preservation is necessary to be understood as local phenomena, manipulated by
Oysters filter water for the rest of the community. They can filter up to 2 gallons (8 liters) of water in an hour. They are the most effective filtration system in the Chesapeake Bay. Before Europeans/ Americans started to harvest the oysters in this region, the amount of oysters in the Bay could filter the 18 trillion gallons of water in the Chesapeake in a matter of days, while the current population takes over a year.
Given the changes in Red Lobster’s strategy over the past few years and the surprising ability to attract new, “experiential” customers, it our recommendation that they modify their strategy to focus on pursuing this type of clientele. We will go into further detail momentarily; however, the reason for focusing on the experiential customer group is that Red Lobster has the opportunity to increase revenue and net operating income at each restaurant by 20% or more. Granted, these are enormous gains and it will take a few years to realize their full potential, but for the reasons laid out below, we believe these gains are a realistic possibility.

Commercial fishing is a reason so many turtles are dying each year and making them become endangered. Duke University found that shrimp trawls and commercial fishing nets have killed over 250,000 loggerheads in the human's lifetime. Lots of the turtles are dying to the actions we make. When you are fishing you
