2 Objectives Students will be able to: Describe the adaptations of fish to their environments Describe how adaptations can help fish survive in their habitats Interpret the importance of adaptation in animals Construct a fish with a given set of adaptations

3 Background Aquatic Animal adaptations have occurred over the course of several years Adaptations increase likelihood of survival Some have adapted to a point that they are vulnerable to slight changes

4 Mouth 1: Sucker Shaped Mouth Advantage: Feeds on very small plants and animals Examples: Sucker, Carp

5 Mouth 2: Elongated upper jaw Advantage: feeds on prey it looks down on Examples: Spoonbill, Sturgeon

6 Mouth 3: Elongated Lower Jaw Advantages: Feeds on prey it sees above Examples: Barracuda, snook

7 Mouth 4: Duckbill Jaws Advantages: Grasps prey Examples: Muskellunge, Pike

8 Mouth 5: Extremely Large Jaws Advantages: Surrounds Prey Examples: Bass, Grouper

9 Body Shape 1: Torpedo Shape Advantages: Fast Moving Examples: Trout, Salmon, Tuna

10 Body Shape 2: Flat Bellied Advantages: Bottom Feeder Examples: Catfish, Sucker

11 Body Shape 3: Vertical Disk Advantages: Feeds above or below Examples: Butterfish, Bluegill

12 Body Shape 4: Horizontal Disk Advantages: Bottom Dweller Examples: Flounder, Halibut

13 Body Shape 5: Hump Backed Advantages: Stable in fast-moving water Examples: Sockeye, Salmon, Chub, Razorback

14 Coloration 1: Light-Colored Belly Advantages: Predators have difficulty seeing it from below Examples: Most minnows, Perch, Tuna, Mackerel

15 Coloration 2: Dark Upper Side Advantages: Predators have difficulty seeing it from above Examples: Bluegill, Crappie, Barracuda, Flounder

16 Coloration 3: Vertical Stripes Advantages: Can hide in vegetation Examples: Muskellunge, Pickerel, Bluegill

17 Coloration 4: Horizontal Stripes Advantages: Can hide in vegetation Examples: Yellow and White Bass, Snook

18 Coloration 5: Mottled Coloration Advantages: Can hide in rocks and on bottom Examples: Trout, Grouper, Rock Bass, Hogsucker

19 Reproduction 1: Eggs deposited in bottom Advantages: Hidden from Predators Examples: Trout, Salmon, most minnows

20 Reproduction 2: Eggs deposited in nests Advantages: Protected by adults Examples: Bass, Stickleback

21 Reproduction 3: Floating Eggs Advantages: Dispersed in high numbers Examples: Striped Bass

22 Reproduction 4: Eggs attached to vegetation Advantages: Stable until hatching Examples: Perch, Northern Pike, Carp

23 Reproduction 5: Live Bearers Advantages: High Survival Rate Examples: Guppies
