The Daily Globe. Hello, my name is Askya and a few weeks ago I had an interview with an oceanographer Mr. D. Fisher. The topic was about the Mediterranean Sea and its uses. My first question was if the sea is only blue like most people think.

Hello, my name is Askya and a few weeks ago I had an interview with an oceanographer Mr. D. Fisher. The topic was about the Mediterranean Sea and its uses.
slide4

His answer was that the sea only looks blue because of the sun rays, the rest of the time it looks greenish or grey. This means that the sea is full of tiny,

nourishing plants called Algae, which are gobbled up by small fish, then the small fish is gobbled by bigger fish, then the big fish is gobbled by even bigger fish….you get the idea.

slide6

Mr. Fisher told me that the salinity of the Mediterranean Sea is only 38% parts per thousand. The salinity varies from the Eastern basin and Western basin by 2%. The Dead Sea, compared to the Mediterranean Sea salinity, is 240% parts per thousand, because it doesn’t have any openings e.g. like the Strait of Gibraltar.

slide8

The sea can provide us with a

lot of resources like fish for food, salt and seaweed which is used for: beer, bombs, toothpaste and even for fertilizing fields. Water is the most important thing you can get from the sea, especially for Malta.

slide10

Of course it does. Each year we throw about 26 billon tonnes of rubbish, sewage, old industrial chemical, oil and even radioactive waste into the seas and oceans. This is fatal to all living organisms, even humans.

slide12

Mr. Fisher said," Well not really, but we have to start now because we relay on a lot of things of the seas like I said before.”

slide13

Well I am finishing this report from the safety of the lounge in the Water view hotel. Cheers!
