    If the shrimp population increased, then the plankton population would decrease, causing a drop in the production of oxygen and the salmon population and human population would increase, but with struggles with oxygen since plankton produce half of the world's oxygen. TL;DR: C should be the answer

    the plankton will decrease because the shrimp would be eating all of the plankton which would lead to an abundance of shrimp, which would mean more food for the salmon to eat

    If there's more food for something to eat, then they will reproduce more because they feel safe but that's usually where the population cap comes into play at a later date

    If there's more shrimp, then more plankton would get eaten and the shrimp would have a spike in reproduction for a short amount of time which would have the salmon population spike due to more food for them to eat
