CXC English A exam: Past paper type summary writing question 2
Here is another CXC past paper type summary writing question.
Today is my very great pleasure to welcome Dr.
Tristan, the famous underwater explorer. His views
on man's treatment of the ocean are well
known. Dr. Tristan, you have expressed very
strong views about the way man treats the ocean.
Let us begin with this - What do you mean?
Simply that man still has the same approach to
fishing as he had to hunting in early times. For
example, man has indiscriminately slaughtered
whales and certain other species. We need to ask
ourselves, is man killing more fish than he needs?
Surely you don't expect us to treat the sea as we
treat the land?
I certainly do. We must use the sea, too, as
farmers instead of hunters. We must plant the sea and herd its animals.
Why is this so important? I'd always believed that
the ocean had endless resources, that it held
unlimited reserves of food which could last until
the end of the world.
That is a false concept which unfortunately,
many people share. The truth is that it is only in
the upper zone that the seas are productive of
life. This zone is very limited. We are rapidly
digging into a food reserve that is limited and
vulnerable, despite what most people think.
But even in the upper zone there must still be
several billions of fish in the open sea?
That's what you think. The fact is that the annual
tonnage of fishing has decreased by a great deal
in the past five years. However, I am not as
concerned about fishing in the open seas as about
fishing on the spawning grounds. Take, for
example, salmon. We catch these when they
gather for breeding. We do the same thing with
tuna and mullets, catching them near the shore
during mating season.
I suppose we're in danger of seriously depleting
our supply of food from the ocean?
The risk in our food supply is not the only
problem. The depleting of our resources from the
ocean is not merely a matter of fishing, you know.
Don't forget oil pollution. Ships frequently spill oil
along our coasts, wiping out millions of fish and
destroying plant life.
I am sure that there is a great deal more that you
can say on this topic, and I hope we will be able
to continue another time. Thank you very much for
That was good. Can I see some more summary writing questions?
According to the famous underwater explorer,Dr.Tristan his views on man's treatment of the ocean is said to be in a critical condition.Man treats the ocean as if they considered it as a non-natural resources meaning the sea provides in many way, example:fish food, water etc.why polluting the sea with oil and destroying plant life when it is productive of life.It is running the risk of our food and decreases in tonnage of fish not only that but it also depletes our resources from the ocean.
Dr Tristan think that the people are destroying the sea and we are not treating it as how we treat the land. The fact is that the annual tonnage of fishing has decreased by a great deal in the past five years. However the is productive of life
Dr.Tristan,the famous underwater explorer believes that man is mistreating the ocean which as a result, reduce resources.He sees it best that we take care of the sea rather than destroying it. Many person misinterpret the fact that their is unlimited resources in the sea, for only the depths of the sea have a more productive life. Not only is the supplying of food diminishing the resources from the ocean but also oil pollution from ships that spill oil along the ocean.
Dr.Tristan, world famous underwater explorer believes that man is treating the ocean with the same regard as land.He becons us to question whether we slaughter more fish thann required, as the ocean's food reserves are not unlimited as is commonly misconstrued. Only the upper oceanic zones are plentiful, and man, by fishing during spawning time, has reduced his overall catch. Oil pollution, he believes, is also responsible for the destruction of our marine life.
Dr.Tristan's views on the way man treats the ocean is stunning because of the fact that man considers the ocean to have an unlimited supply of fishes which can now be proven wrong. Helpless fishes are caught during breeding seasons which reduces the population, hence, prevent further increase which is merely a matter of concern, the main concern is that million of fishes and plant life suffers from ships which often spills waste oil along the coasts.
In summary, Dr. Tristan, the famous underwater explorer has raised his concerns on the treatment of marine lives in the primitive times to now. However, fishermen need to consider for the marine resourses which depends sole on each other for quality production.On the other hand, the Upper Zone does remarkable well. In fact, there have been a drastic decline in fish production in spawn ground compared to the open seas. In addition oil production is another major concern. The constant oil spills are very harmful to the marine resources.
Man has indiscriminately slaughtered underwater species.Under the false concept they have an unlimited reserves of food. Facts state annual fishing has decreased drastically in the past five years. We do the same thing with tuna and mullets, catching them near the shore during mating season. Don't forget oil pollution caused by ships along our coasts, wiping out millions of fish and destroying plant life. We must use the sea, as farmers instead of hunters. We must plant the sea and herd its animals.
As a famous underwriter explorer, man's ways of hunting has not change. Many people believe that there are several billions of fish in the open sea. They fail to realize that they deplete resources from the ocean when they spill oil and endanger fishes on spawning grounds such as salmon,tuna and mullets. This affects our food supply as well.Therefore, man ought to take care of the ocean just as he would take care of his land.
As said by Dr. Tristan, the continuous slaughtering of fish by man through hunting as well as oil pollution is taking a toll on this limited resource. Instead of farming this resource in order to sustain it we overkill by hunting on breeding grounds, depleting food supplies, causing the annual catch to decrease significantly. We do not realize that only the upper part of the sea contains life, which we are decreasing with our carelessness and the false notion that it`s resources are unlimited.
According to Dr.Tristan,the famous underwater explorer,man treats fishing as hunting from the earlier times,since they slaughter these species and may kill more than needed.We should plant the sea and herbs the animals.In the upper zone,the sea is the productive of life but is limited also because of rapidly digging into a food reserve.Facts are that fishing has decreased during the past five years.Fishing in the open sea is better than the spawning ground.Near the shore these species are caught during mating season,hence,decreases its population.Oil pollution,reduces millions of fish and destroy plant life.
