Today in Social Science, Ana Margarita has been with us. We have given to Paqui the project about the agriculture or the stockbreeding. Paqui has said that we have to participate in the blog, because we don't write.
Paqui has explained us what is the transhumance, is a traditional practice of Mediterrean countries that it consists in moving herds in search of fresh pastures and milder weather, depending on the season of the year:
· In winter the herds move to the South, it's starts in November (red arrows)
Ana Margarita has said to us, that probably we'll go to Ireland, it's fantastic!
Then Paqui has given us some exercise to do about stockbreeding, after that we have started with the fishing that it's a economic activity that consists in extracting resources from the aquatic environment. We have seen the fishing equipment, techniques, types of fishing that can be: traditional fishing and commercial or industrial fishing.
