7 Discussion Questions 1.What would happen to your food chain if the aquatic plants died out because of pollution? - Everything would leave or die

8 Discussion Questions 2. What would happen to your food web if the population of great blue herons was to double? - some of the other populations would decrease

9 Discussion Questions 3. Asian carp consume zooplankton, which many fishes typically feed on in their juvenile stages, and have no known predators. How would the introduction of an Asian carp affect your food web? - many populations could decrease - others may not be affected
