Transcript

  • 1. Adriana Rivera Aguayo July 2010 BIOL 3009 Prof. Eneida Díaz
  • 2. Introduction
    • Lionfish are common of the Pacific Ocean.
    • This specie introduction in our ecosystem has various theories.
    • The Red Lionfish is a threat to our marine ecosystems and to our health, specially of children and persons with weak immune system.
  • 3.  
  • 4. Problem
    • How the Red Lionfish is altering our ecosystems and threatening our citizens?
  • 5. Hypothesis
    • By studying their reproduction process, I will find a way to control their population and eradicate the Red Lionfish from our coasts.
  • 6. Objectives
    • Study the Red Lionfish reproduction strategy.
    • Find a way to control the population of the Red Lionfish.
  • 7. Research Design
    • Phase I
      • Collect 24 red lionfish from our coast, 20 female-4 male, put them in 4 tanks and watch carefully their reproduction process and the rate that it grows.
      • Collect eggs and sperm to study and try to alter their development.
      • I will try to study and alter their development in one of these steps:
        • Fertilization
        • Larvae development and dispersion
  • 8. Research Design
    • Phase II
      • Identify a population of Red Lionfish in a coast
      • Isolate two parts of the coast in a coral reef.
    • Apply the reproduction strategy control discovered in phase I.
      • Two groups: Control and experimental.
    • After this, count the population
  • 9. Future Plans
    • Find an institution that gives funds to this investigation in the Puerto Rican coasts affected.
    • Try to integrate other professionals in this area, to find the best solution to this problem.
    • Integrate this plan in a Puerto Rican coast and see how it helps our marine ecosystem.
