Recent incursions by deep-sea fishermen into the habitat of the Madagascan shrimp have led to a significant reduction in the species population. With the breeding season fast approaching, the number of shrimps should soon begin to increase. Nonetheless, the population should not return to the levels before the fishing boats arrived. Because this trend is expected to continue over the next several years, the Madagascan shrimp will quickly become an endangered species. Write a response in which you discuss what specific evidence is needed to evaluate the argument and explain how the evidence would weaken or strengthen the argument. This argument assumes that because of deep sea fishermen the number of Madagascan shrimp led to a significant reduction. The breeding season is fast approaching and number of shrimps will increase, but won't return to the same level before it was. And Madagascar shrimp will be endangered. Firstly, there is not enough argument that deep-sea fishermen are the only reason for shrinking the shrimp population. There may be other elements too. That's assuming is not clear enough. If climate change also a reason for their reduction, then one can't only blame fishermen. Lacking evidence is weakening this point. Another point is that though the breeding season is coming, but it won't return to the level before fishermen are coming. We can't witness any reason or cause why the level won't become the same. Also, what should be the proportion of the shrimp before it was that also not included in the argument. Though it might be true if the incursion by the fishermen continue for several years, Madagascar shrimp maybe become endangered species, but only blaming them for this incident is doubtful. Though deep-sea fishermen are a cause for shrinking Madagascar shrimp, but there is not only enough evidence to blame them.
