Through out the ENBE project I finally realized what is ecosystem.Ecosystem is a complex set of relationship among the living resources,habitat, and residents of an area. It includes plants, trees, animals,microorganism, water, soil, and humans. Ecosystem is defined by thenetwork of interactions among the organisms, and between organismsand their environment, they can come in size but usually encompassspecific, limited space. An ecosystem also conduct energy, water,nitrogen, minerals soil and living organisms. I found all the elementthat use to formed an ecosystem in my site for example fish, water, air,sunlight, plants. Thus a food chain is formed. The food chain is thebasic unit that can form an ecosystem.
Red tilapia is a kind manmade hybridspecies. Unlike the wild tilapia which isblue and dimmer colour, red tilapiahave showy red and pink colour.There are many type of red tilapia forexample Florida red, Jamaicared, Taiwan red and ND56.The similarities for those red tilapia isthey are all hybrid and produce by manusing the biological crossing methodbetween different species of the tilapia.The differences between the red tilapiaand the normal tilapia is growing rate.Red tilapia have a faster growing ratecompare to the normal tilapia

The Red tilapia (Oreochromis Niloticus). The length up to 15 inches and the mass up to 9.5 pounds for the adultfish. Lives for up to 9 years. Lives in brackish water and survives in temperatures between 55 and98F. Tilapia serves as a natural biological control for most aquatic plants. Tilapia rarely compare with other “pond” fish for food. Instead, becausethey consume plants, and nutrients unused by other fish species andsubstantially reduce oxygen-depleting detritus, adding tilapia oftenincreases the population, size and health of other fish.

An invasive speciesIt rapidly forms a denseground cover, crowdingaway and preventingother plant species fromregenerating. This speciesis widely available as anornamental and istherefore likely to spreadfurther.

As a conclusion, I felt happy tohave this site visit for my ENBEproject. Through this project I canunderstand more about therelationship between the humanand the animal. Besides, I also havethe chance to know more about theflora and fauna. Moreover, I also getto learn about natural by using 5sense which is touch, sound, taste,smell, see. At the end I need tothanks to Ms D, and Miss Norma forgiving us this chance.
