Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Is eating the best solution to deal with over-breeding species? There are four solutions we have found to deal with the over-breeding species. They are eating, sterilization, and translocation hunting. We are going to explain these methods by different cases. Eating Eating means the prey eaten by the higher trophic level species. It can apply on most species. This method can reduce the number of species in a short period of time and tackle the over-breeding problem. The case below can use the method of eating to solve the problem of over-breeding. ...read more.

? Eating the daisy crabs is suitable in this case because this method can reduce the number of Daisy Crab immediately. Besides, European do not eat Daisy Crab, but Chinese do, so they can export Daisy Crab to some Asian countries. Not only they can reduce the Daisy Crab population in river, but also bring the economic benefits. In comparison with other methods, we found that eating is this best way to tackle the overpopulated Daisy Crabs. Firstly, compare with sterilization. Sterilization is not a proper method in this case because there are too many crabs. ...read more.

Conclusion

Not only can bring business opportunities for these countries, but also meet the Asian demand for it. It is wasteful if we just hunt them. Lastly, compare with translocation. As Daisy Crabs are the species that first found in China, if it transfers to other region, it would become a foreign species. This foreign species may preclude the survival of reintroduced native species. Therefore, translocation is not a suitable solution to deal with the problem in this case too. the number of Daisy Crab immediately. Besides, European do not eat Daisy Crab, but Chinese do, so they can export Daisy Crab to some Asian countries. Not only they can reduce the Daisy Crab population in river, but also bring the economic benefits. ...read more.
