  • Challenge Question #2

    Dear Mrs.Donnelly,

    Our answer to the question is that an upwelling is an upward flow of water
    that is rich in nutrients. It also brings a good population of
    fish(plankton)to feed on these nutrients.

    So we think that since the nutrients brings the fish,that it will also
    bring the whales, and they will eat the fish.
