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.
*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.

*The EU signs trade agreements with some countries to import their products at a cheaper price.
* to achieve self-sufficiency

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