Squid is slowly becoming popular when it comes to food. After all the population of Squid is growing to the point it there are more than 300 known species of squid. Do to this increase of squid population fishermen seem to catch more squids than fish, so we fry them up and eat them.
Squids, if you ever go fishing in the ocean you'll most likely catch a few squids every now and again. Squids often live for 8 years and grow to be about 39-46 ft.
Now keep this in mind this came from only California. The population of Squids growing have been nothing new for years. The only time it started to make a dramatic change is by the 1990's where the population dramatically grow to be 10 times larger.
One of the Squid's nature predators is the North Pacific Seabird, but thanks to climate change, commercial fisheries, and eating plastic that causes their populations have been decreasing. Without the North Pacific Seabird, squid are able to reproduce like rabbits.
The raise in popularity of squid has been growing for Gothic food. The reason is because of the ink squids produce can be put into anything from ice cream, coffee, pasta, etc.
Why is population growing? It's because fishermen often got after the top predators like sharks, tuna, whales, etc. Then they go after the fish like cod, hake, and halibut. The fish that live for a long time, leaving the lower fish like octopus and squid.
Summary: The art of camouflage is a survival need when it comes to squids. Scientists decide to develop a combat technology with the squid’s "invisibility stickers" that cover the squid. What the "invisibility stickers" will cover the troops to be able to camouflage. Sustainability: With this new form of technology wars could be easily won. Connections: Do to the fact Squid population is at an all time high there been a rise in testing with camouflage to help further the technology of war.
Summary: From 1950s to now, studies have been found that seabird numbers have decrease by nearly 70%. The reason for this population decrease is do to overfishing of the fish that seabirds rely on for food, they also get tangled in fishing gear and die or are sickened by oil spills or plastic pollution this also includes changes to seabird habitat like ecological changes do to climate change or human life. They also face threats of rats that eat their eggs. Sustainability: The Seabird population have decrease, there been less amount of mating and population growth. Connections: Do to the decrease of Seabirds there is nothing keeping the rising population of Squid at bay other than humans.
Ever wonder what you can do with that tiny squid you cough? Were you hoping for a larger fish? Well here's your Solution! Squids are wonderful for catching other fishes, and lucky you! They're a huge supply of squid in the ocean.
Have you even been to a real beach and saw the ocean before? It's a beautiful sight but there been a problem lately. There been a rise of plastics that been finding their way into the ocean . Once they get into the water animals like seabirds would eat the plastics thinking they're fish. Once that animal eats the plastic they'll normally die allowing their natural food source grow in population.
Humans. We demand so much, forgetting we aren't the only ones on this world. We need this, we need that. We dump trash like plastic not caring where the trash goes. Well that trash goes into the ocean killing wild life. We disrupt their lives so it should be our responsibility to clean up our mess. Each animal holds an important part but they can't when they're being killed off because of us.
