  1. Chesapeake Bay Research BY: Dakota Sergeant

  2. Why is it important to have a variety of animals in the bay? • It is important to have a variety of animals in the Chesapeake Bay. The Sea Nettles are important to the bay because they are almost 90 percent of the water. The Toadfish are important to the bay because they are healthy. The Algae are important to the bay because they are a food source. My research will show that Sea Nettles, Toadfish, and Algae are important to the bay.

  3. Sea Nettles The Sea Nettles are important to the bay because they are almost 90 percent of the bay. Some fish do not eat sea nettles, but some fish do. They depend on the movement of the current. They have a ring of tentacles down their belly. They have stinging cells that replace a barb that sticks under skin. They are a type of zooplankton.

  4. Toadfish • Toadfish are important to the bay because they are healthy. Their heads are enormous with threading mouths. They are completely covered in thick layers of slime. You can find them all year round in the bay. Toadfish systems make ideal cone dates . Toadfish have the worlds fastest twitching muscles in the world. Toadfish are sometimes called omnivores. Toadfish was the first fish launched into space.

  5. Algae Algae are important to the bay because they are a food sorce. Algae are important to the bay because they are earths oxygen. Whales, seals, fish, octopuses, and starfish depend on algae. There are about 27,000 different types of Algae. Algae can be green, blue, red, or brown. Algae is not an animal or plant.

  6. Conclusion In conclusion I learned that Sea Nettles are important to the bay because they are almost 90 percent of the bay. Toadfish are important to the bay because they are healthy. Algae are important to the bay because they are a food sorce.
