They use sharp spears to stab them, if stabbing one time is not enough, twice or three times until it is dead, just imagine how the baby dolphins feel when they see their parents being killed. O’s Barry went the cove with the crew members, they saw the way that the fish men slaughtered the dolphin, it really hurt their feelings and also gave them more reasons to help the dolphins after that day. There was a scene I watched in the film that really touches me, when the dolphins slaughter was taking action, one of the crew member saw a dolphin tried to run away, she said, “I saw a poor dolphin tried to escape, it was swimming towards them, bloods were coming out of the dolphin every time when it tried to come up in water, and u can see the last couple of breaths it took, and it went down, you never saw it again”. I really feel it, I thought I was
So we get Robert DeNiro as a shark with a mole on his cheek; Martin Scorsese as a puffer fish with huge, bushy eyebrows; and Will "2K" Smith as an ambitious yet lackadaisical fish named Oscar with sticky-outy ears, and a big, irritating mouth. The comparisons between Oscar and Smith don't end with the physical resemblance, either. Oscar, like his real life counterpart, becomes famous for perpetrating a hoax. Where Smith's swindle involves the premise of legitimate talent, Oscar - he's named after the award Smith will never win - cons his ocean mates into thinking he has the ability to kill sharks. He doesn't, of course - Oscar's legend grows after being in the right spot at the right time when a dropping anchor takes out a pursuing shark who happens to be the son of an underwater Don (DeNiro).
As if that was not horrible enough, dolphin trainers and veterinarians witness and sometimes assist the killings. If they see a "good-looking dolphin", they purchase them to use in dolphinariums (a dolphin aquarium) and amusement parks around the world (Brian Duignan, Dolphin Slaughter in Japan, Advocacy.britannica.com) including the beloved Sea World. A former Sea World biologist stated in a short documentary, "Sea World has been involved in illegal and unethical actions to assure their parks are well stocked with killer whales." He also said in the same documentary that, "Sea World representatives secretly promoted the Japanese dolphin drivers where thousands of animals are
Because he went out so far, the sharks ate the fish on the way back to the port. He did not want his fish to be ripped and eaten by Santiago's worst enemy, the sharks. He wished it were only a dream so that the fish would not have to go through the pain. This example shows how much he cared for the fish and how his relationship with the fish was affected by his feeling of caring. Santiago also deeply respects fish in general and this aspect of his relationship to the fish is clearly shown throughout the book.
He explains that killing a lobster for our own pleasure is not right; it is unethical. Also, he argues that it is definitely unethical to put a lobster in boiling water because we do not know if lobsters feel pain or not. Throughout the article he suggest that lobster might be actually experiencing some kind of pain when put in boiling water. He aims to prove to readers that killing lobster by putting them into boiling water is unethical, and is not right just to fulfill our gustatory pleasure. In middle of his text, he shows many ways lobster is cruelly killed and why this is not right to do.
After recounting his original story with the animals and the carnivorous island, the Japanese investigators are immediately skeptical and tell Pi right away, “Mr. Patel, we don’t believe your story” (Life of Pi, 99). The investigators cannot be blamed, for Pi tells them a story with a talking tiger and a flesh eating island of algae in the middle of the ocean. Speaking of the island, they tell Pi, “Your island is botanically impossible” (99). After every account, the investigators refute it as unbelievable.
The shark smells the blood comes up and attacks the marlin taking a huge chunk of flesh out of the marlin. "Que va." the boy said. "There are many good fishermen and some great ones. But there is only you”. This shows how much respect the boy has for the old man.
Fin Whale Razorback might sound like a name for a cool car, but it’s actually a name for the Fin Whale. Other names include Common Rorqual and Finback (Harrison, 2005). The Fin Whale is part of the species Balaenoptera physalus(Harrison,2005). The reason why I chose the Fin Whale is because it caught my attention on the hit television show “Whale Wars” on Animal Planet. “Whale Wars” is a show about a conservation society who protects whales in the southern ocean from the Japanese Whaling Fleet who hunts whales to sell the meat illegally on the Japanese Market.
Shark poaching is a big concern because it affects the future of sharks and their place of living. Poaching is the process where people get rich by catching sharks on long lines, cutting their fins off, and then dumping the remaining body of the shark back into the ocean to suffocate and bleed to death. Shark poachers seek financial gain and at times religious value, however, by doing so they fail to realize the negative impact that their actions have on the environment and the shark species. “Sharks have made it through multiple mass extinctions on our planet, now many species are going to go the way of the
Whaling has been around on since prehistoric times, they were hunted by chasing the whales, and throwing a harpoon into them. Whaling and fishing in the late nineteenth and twentieth century became a tragedy of the commons where fishermen had little incentive to allow some fish to remain to only be taken by others. Countries around the world were putting whales on the brink of extinction through any means necessary. By not taking young fish, this would allow future fish to keep the population stable, but by not taking the younger fish, the fishermen would lose these to other fishermen. In the 1800s and 1900s whales were found to be quite practical and useful.
