The boys set a trap for the shark and waited until the next day to find the buoy twenty feet underwater. Sonny was chosen to retrieve the buoy and while doing that he found a shark on the line. Once the shark was finally caught the boys put a note in every lunch box of the whole film crew in hope of the old man would find the note to come see the shark. The man did not show so the boys let the shark go. This part of the chapter seemed hard to believe, only because of the timing between letting the shark go and when the old man talked to him.
Dr Carl Meyer from Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology stated that mass levels of shark culling “runs the risk of ecosystem-level cascade effects where a general lack of sharks results in boom or bust in populations of species further down the food chain”. Furthermore when nets are used to trap sharks, often animals such as dolphins, turtles, whales and dugongs become trapped in them. Turtles are one of the most endangered species as a whole and are just innocent bystanders in this war between humans and sharks. We need to be careful of not affecting other animals in this quest to reduce shark numbers in the name of nothing. Sharks can already be caught legally by commercial and recreational fishers so any cull would be largely
Sharks, an animal that has survived multiple stages of extinction and surprisingly an extremely shy animal. The documentary Sharkwater by Rob Stewart is an extremely eye opening movie. The documentary primarily takes place in the Galapagos and the Cocos Island. During this video Rob shows the audience things that don’t get talked about on the news like shark attacks do. After watching the documentary I was shocked about what was happening to these animals and how big of an industry it is.
Since dolphins communicate by sonar, this noise frightens them because it is an abnormal sound. The dolphins try to escape but the fishermen herd them into the cove and block their escape route with layers of fishing net. some are captured and sent to aquariums, amusement parks and interactive “dolphin encounters" worldwide. “The dolphins are speared, hooked, hoisted into the air by their tails, and finally eviscerated alive. The methods, say researchers, result in a long and painful death for these intelligent marine mammals,” says an article in Science Letter.
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
The initial scenes in the film exemplify the hostile attitudes between all the different cultural groups. Soft non-diegetic music reflects the strong familial bond between Eva and a friend of the same cultural background, similar to the relationship of Celia and Rosalind. The music changes to rap as other gang members of a different ethnicity attack. Similar to the character Rosalind, Ms G acts also as a catalyst, but for her English class. Rosalind and Ms Gruwell both refer to other texts, Intertextuality is used as, Rosalind refers classical mythology when coaching Orlando, “The foolish chroniclers of that age found it was Hero of Sestos.
Even though the marlin was indeed his friend as well as his equal, the old man knew he still needed to capture and kill the fish to regain his acceptance from the other fisherman. This was very hard for the old man to do. The sharks come about to represent defeat and death. The sharks tried to defeat Santiago’s success by eating the poor marlin. ‘’Now they have beaten me, he thought.
Native Son Biggers Reaction to Fear Book 1 is called fear as most of Biggers life is surrounded by fear. Fear of white society, fear of being caught at doing something he shouldn’t be doing, fear of his friends. But what the title ‘Fear’ doesn’t express is Biggers reaction to it. Bigger reacts to fear with violence as he finds that it is his only release from the oppressiveness of white society. We know that as, when there is the rat incident, with everybody being scared, Bigger reacts by killing the beast brutally with a skillet.
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.
