Nature and Context

Apex predators play an important role in the ecosystem by maintaining the species below them in the food chain and serving as an indicator for ocean health. They help remove the weak and the sick as well as keeping the balance with competitors helping to ensure species diversity. Having a gauge on the health of apex predators in the ocean helps humans gauge the entire oceanic ecosystem.
