Fresh Water Biome

Freshwater biome

The freshwater biome I've chosen has many producers, consumers, and decomposers. The sun gives energy to the phytoplankton, then the phytoplankton gets eaten by a benthic invertebrate, a primary consumer, that gets eaten by a sea duck, a secondary consumer, and finally a eagle, a tertiary consumer, eats the duck. The location of this biome is the Chesapeake Bay.

How humans are impacting the environment

Some positive ways humans impact the environment is by making sure the fish population stays healthy and the animals that eat/drink from the bay stay healthy too. The negative way humans impact the environment is by overfishing the bay and unintentionally adding pesticides to the runoff that goes into the bay. Either way people help and hurt the environment without necessary meaning to.
