21st of January 2011

Hello everyone, well I'm going to write Friday's journal because JUAN CARLOS didn't write it!!!

So on Friday we checked some exercices of the review:

-In the exercice 18 we can think that the best places to fish are in continental shelves, cold currents and in confluence of cold and warm currents.

19.- This was about territorial waters that are the international laws recognize the right of every costal country to delimitate, that is, area of 200 marine miles from the coast to the international waters.

20.- What's fishing agreement? It's a treaty between countries that allows one countries boats to fish in the territorial waters of another country. In exchange for fishing in their territorial waters, the fishing companies have to hire native workers or give them a part of the fishes catches.
21.- We think about the main problems of fishing are pollution and overfishing. These problems have reduced considerably the quantity of fish avalible. This had led to limit the fish catch and to establish close seasons for some species. But the problems persist.


22.- What's aquaculture? It's an alternative. It consist in cultivating aquatic spieces in enclosed places:
-Fish farms: freshwater fish and algae are raised in tanks or enclosed sections of rivers or dams.




-Mariculture: it consists in raising saltwater fish, molluscs or algae in marne farms, in an enclosed section of the sea: sellyfish, oysters, clams, seaweeds, cultured pearls...



After checking the exercises we read the information about the primary sector in Spain.




We wre talking about the CAP(Common Agricultural Policy) belongs to the European Union, it main objectives, actions and problems.

-OBJETIVES:
*To achive self-comsuption: to produce the products needed by the EU members and to avoid surplus.
*To keep the standards of living of the producers.

-ACTIONS:
*The EU gives subsides to the farmers to keep some crops or to abandon some others.
*The EU signs trade agreements with some countries to import their products at a cheaper price.

-PROBLEMS:
* to achieve self-sufficiency
*to avoid surplus
* to keep the standars of living of the producers.

For homework Paqui gave exercice 24, but this is not on Friday, so bye bye.

I think that it's all, if I forgot something please tell me!! =)

Hello Dani. Thanks for writing the journal, but there is a mistake about what we did after checking the exercises: we studied the CAP. Remember what we commented about this. Exercise 24 (the one we have corrected today)was about what we studied on Friday. Please, correct this.

I hope your classmates correct the few mistakes you´ve made on your post. I think you can find some if you read what you have written carefully.

Good dissection!

Hello Dani, the journal is very good but you have "eaten" some words:
In the answer of the exercise 20: In exchange for fishing in their territorial waters, the fishing companies HAVE to...
In the answer of the exercise 21: These problems have reduced considerably the quantity of fish AVALIABLE.
In Mariculture: it consist in RAISING...
And for finish in the final part: After check the EXERCISES we read the information.
For homework Paqui gave (only gave)
Bye!

Hello! I can see some mistakes but I also think there are some sentences not really clear..
-You have eaten some letters from some words:molluScs,companies havE..
-Some sentences are in 3rd person and you haven't included the S. (it consists)
-After checkING.
-You can't write: Paqui had gave. I think you should write: Paqui gave.
I also think you have written many: THAT
I think it's all..
See you tomorrow!

HI! :)
Dani you can write the things that we told about CAP. For example:
-The CAP(Common Agricultural Policy) belongs to the European Union.
You can write the main objectives, actions and problems too.
PROBLEMS: * to achieve self-sufficiency
*to avoid surplus
* to keep the standars of living of the producers.
The same with actions and problems, you write the differents things of each one. And related to the problems you can write the most important for you, for me the most important problem is:
VERY RICH PRODUCERS WHO DON´T LIVE FROM AGRICULTURE RECEIVE SUBSIDIES.
This is a way os waste money like in other things. That´s all
See you :)
