  • 1. Fishing in the North Sea Title: Jun 15 ­ 19:50 (1 of 16)
  • 2. Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:01 (2 of 16)
  • 3. The North Sea is one of the most productive fishing areas  in the world It contains over 200 species of fish, although just 12 of  these make up over 90% of those caught by fishermen. Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:02 (3 of 16)
  • 4. Until recently it was thought that the North Sea  was large enough to cope with the amount of fish  being caught. It is now know that this is not the case as fish  levels (particularly those of haddock and cod)  have reached record low figures. Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:27 (4 of 16)
  • 5. Numbers are now so low that it is possible that some  species, like cod, could disappear altogether. Look at figure 2 on your resource sheet Questions: 1. What was the total weight of Cod capable of spawning in 1963? 2. How much had this fallen to by 2003? 3. What does 'sustainable level' mean? 4. Describe the change in Haddock stocks from 1963 to 2003. Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:29 (5 of 16)
  • 6. The European Union The EU has the greatest authority in deciding the future of fishing in the North  Sea. It has suggested several ways of dealing with the problems of  overfishing. For each suggestion write down what you think  about it. Suggestion 1: I think... Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:42 (6 of 16)
  • 7. 1. Place a total ban on the fishing of all species at  risk. This would mainly affect the fishing for cod,  haddock and herring Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:45 (7 of 16)
  • 8. 2. Place a total ban on fishing for cod, as this is  the species at greatest risk Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:47 (8 of 16)
  • 9. 3. Allow fishing with larger netting only. This means  that smaller fish would escape through the nets and  could breed and grow, and therefore help preserve  the species in the long term. Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:50 (9 of 16)
  • 10. 4. Help fishing communities by giving them money to  develop other incomes. In this way they would not be  so dependent upon fishing. Title: Jun 15 ­ 20:55 (10 of 16)
  • 11. 5. Set different allowances for different countries.  Scotland, for example, could be allowed to catch  more fish than the Netherlands, because their  economy is more dependent on fishing. Title: Jun 15 ­ 21:01 (11 of 16)
  • 12. 6. Do nothing. The North Sea has always coped in  the past, and is likely to do so again. Title: Jun 15 ­ 21:05 (12 of 16)
  • 13. Now look at figures 3 & 4 on your resource sheet. Read through the EU suggestions (figure 3) again and cross out any that you think are bad ideas. Now read through the views given in figure 4. All of these people will be affected in one way or another by any decisions Title: Jun 15 ­ 21:10 (13 of 16)
  • 14. Questions: 1. Who do you have the most sympathy for, and why? 2. Who do you have no sympathy for and why? Title: Jun 15 ­ 21:12 (14 of 16)
  • 15. What would you do? Title: Jun 15 ­ 21:14 (15 of 16)
  • 16. Title: Jun 15 ­ 21:15 (16 of 16)
