A locavore is an individual whose diet comprises of meals that are grown or produced locally. These types of diet can be desired by the locavores for ecological reasons. Being a locavore has a number of benefits. The local food is fresh and has higher taste compared to different diets. It has higher nutritional content material and conserves the environment because when transporting it, fewer fuels and greenhouse gases are emitted. Locavores create communities that are livelier due to the fact farmers growing local plants meet and socialize. The local economy is supported and jobs created due to the fact of the need for labor to process and distribute regionally produced foods. There are some drawbacks associated with being a locavore. Locally produced foods are more expensive than foods produced through massive production. A locavore is limited to certain foods because of seasons; some foods are only available during their seasons. They are limited to crops that are only grown in their regions.
The robust population size of the giant pacific octopus can be attributed to the fact that they live longer than any other species of octopus. Knowing the population size of the giant pacific octopus is difficult because mothers die after hatching the young ones because they do not look for food when hatching. A female giant pacific octopus lays up to an approximate of 74000 eggs.
Community members were upset about Dylan Mayer’s hunt because of the way he treated the octopus. He punched and beat it at the shore and later threw it at the back of his truck. The members claimed that the place he hunted the octopus was inappropriate because people travelled to the area to see octopuses. Others claimed that it was hatching some eggs when it was hunted.
All animal species should be protected, whether they are endangered or not. They play an important role in nature by balancing it and failing to protect them is disrupting nature. An example is sharks which feed on fish. If they are not protected and they reduce greatly in number, the fish are going to overpopulate and this will affect nature.
To establish an appropriate balance between protecting local populations and feeding on them, it is necessary to conserve the environment to ensure that it supports their breeding. In this way, they are going to increase in number and when human beings feed on them, a good number will still remain. Substitute foods can also be invented to ensure that too much pressure is not placed on the local populations.
