# Marine science question, please help! will give best answer award!?

A group of marine scientists introduced a species of fish into an artificial habitat and wanted to determine if it will grow well in the new environment. They recorded the population over several years and their data is plotted below. Analyze the data and formulate a conclusion. Does this species of fish do well in this habitat? Predict what will happen to the population over the next five years.

Graph of introduced fish. The X axis shows the number of years since introduction starting from 0 to 9. The Y axis shows the number of individuals from 100-800.The line on the graph starts at 0 years and 100 individuals and increases over the span of years.
