      Snakeheads are freshwater fishes with little, if any, tolerance for saltwater. Within their native and introduced ranges, they live in small and large streams, canals, rivers, ponds, reservoirs, and lakes. Many species can tolerate a wide range of pH, and one species living in Malaysia and parts of Indonesia prefers highly acid waters (pH ).   Nutria is an invasive species in Southern Louisiana. Exotic animals like the nutria, a large semi-aquatic rodent native to South America, can damage wetlands. Nutrias were imported to the U.S. for fur production, but they escaped captivity and quickly established large, wild populations in the marshes of Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve in Louisiana and in other Gulf Coast.

        Introduction. Since the s, plastic production has increased by approximately % annually, evolving into a $ billion global industry [1, 2].Approximately eight million metric tons of plastics enter the oceans annually [], and conservative estimates suggest trillion plastic particles currently circulate in ocean surface waters [3•]. - Introduction to Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Training Notebook - Water chemistry plays an important role in the health, abundance and diversity of the aquatic life that can live in a stream. Excessive amounts of some constituents (nutrients), or the lack of others (dissolved oxygen), can result in degraded conditions and harm aquatic life.

      The fish are called “white perch” in north Louisiana, but in both places they are so esteemed for their mild, sweet flesh that the Louisiana legislature has declared them the official state freshwater fish. Environmental conditions also affect crappie populations. Research done in Iowa indicates that water level and clarity affect the. Picking out a new fish for your aquarium or visiting your local bait shop before a fishing trip may seem like a harmless excursion. But the pet and aquarium industry, nursery and water garden outlets, aquaculture and live bait shops are a major focus for preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species through the trade in live organisms.

Most Louisiana residents think of water pollution as toxic chemicals emitted from industrial plants or. Water pollution harms fish populations in various ways.

When nutrients wash into waterways through storm runoff, they deplete oxygen in the water that fish need to survive. Nitrogen and phosphorus typically enter streams and lakes from fertilizers, dog waste, and other sources.

Over time, these nutrients build up in the water and promote algae and water plant growth, and as they decay, they lower oxygen levels in the water.

In almost any aquatic environment, fluctuations in natural nutrient cycles create imbalances which can lead to oxygen depletions and fish kills. Generally, these fluctuations are difficult or impossible to predict, but high nutrient levels from feeding or over-fertilizing almost always compound problems with.
