[00:03.34]In a moment,you are going tohear an interview between Mr.BarryWhite,
[00:09.53]a radio interviewer,and Mrs.Carol Brady,
[00:14.45]a scientist workingin the British fisheries industry.
[00:19.54]Before you listen,look at Questions24 to 31.
[00:26.33]Note theexample done for you.
[00:31.03]As you listen to the conversation,answer Questions 24 to 31.
[00:39.00]Barry White:Our next guest is Carol  Brady.
[00:43.18]Carol is aspokes person withthe BritishFisheries Council.
[00:50.57]She's come here tochat with us about recent problems with the European Union
[00:56.35]and its affect on the fishing industry.
[01:00.63]How are you today,Carol?
[01:03.53]Carol Brady:I'm very well.Thank you for  asking,Barry.
[01:08.13]Barry:I must admit something about  our topic before  we go on Carol.
[01:14.42]I'm not too keen on fish,unless it comes with a side order of chips.
[01:20.61]Carol:Well,don't worry about that Barry.
[01:24.61]At least you are eating fish in your diet,
[01:29.21]after all there are many benefits to your health
[01:33.91]if you include fish as one of your staples1.
[01:38.61]Barry:I wouldn't say I eat fish as often as that.
[01:43.11]It's just,well,you  know...fish are so  slimy.
[01:49.40]Carol:Well,there are  other reasons to eat fish other than its  health benefits.
[01:55.30]Barry:Oh really,and  what would they  be?
[01:59.61]Carol:Well,Britain  is one of Europe's leading fishing nations.
[02:05.60]We operate in the continental2 waters,the North Sea,
[02:11.68]the Irish Sea and the Atlantic.
[02:15.99]The fishing industry is important to the national economy,
[02:22.08]and has been centred on a number of ports around the British coast.
[02:28.19]Well,if it supports the economy I suppose I should eat fish a bit more often.
[02:35.19]Carol:That is a good idea,Barry,
[02:38.69]because employment in and income from fishing have
[02:44.08]declined substantially in recent years.
[02:49.17]Barry:Oh really? And why is that?
[02:53.06]Carol:Well mainly this is due to the reduction in available
[02:59.46]fish stocks in European waters because of overfishing,
[03:05.26]and fluctuations3 in fish breeding patterns.
[03:11.06]Many fishermen have become unemployed4,
[03:15.94]and traditional fishing towns,such as
[03:20.72]Grirnsby and the Scottish ports,have suffered.
[03:26.24]But the fishing industry still accounts for some
[03:31.23]55 per cent of Britain's fish consumption.
[03:36.24]Barry:I feel so responsible.
[03:39.64]You know tonight I'm going to fry some  mackerel.
[03:45.02]Carol:Really Barry,you're so dramatic.
[03:49.20]Barry:Well I'm not joking.
[03:52.80]Currently,how many fishermen still find employment in the industry?
[03:58.92]The number of fishermen is now about 17,000,with some 5,000
[04:06.31]occasionally employed and about three jobs
[04:11.12]in associated occupations for every one fisherman.
[04:17.20]Barry:I had no idea the industry was so large!
[04:21.51]Now,earlier in the program I mentioned that currently,because of the EU,
[04:28.02]Our fishing industry is in some trouble.
[04:32.20]Can you expand on this for our listeners?
[04:36.19]Carol:Certainly Barry.
[04:39.59]But the European Union is not the only institution causing these problems.
[04:46.17]The British government has also put some restrictions5
[04:50.74]on the fishermen's ability to fish.
[04:54.64]The EU insists on the need to conserve6 fish resources and prevent over-fishing
[05:01.82]Zones have been stablished in which fisherman may operate.
[05:07.51]Barry:And what happens inside these 'zones' ?
[05:11.69]Now,EU countries and some non-members can fish in specified7 areas
[05:19.19]up to Britain's 10 km fishing limit.
[05:24.47]Quota systems are in force inside and beyond the zones
[05:29.64]in order to restrict fish catches to prescribed amounts.
[05:35.83]British government measures to limit the time fishing vessels8
[05:41.92]spend at sea have further restricted employment.
[05:47.51]These EU and government policies
[05:51.71]have affected9 the fishermen's old freedom of choice and operation.
[05:57.80]This problem sounds even more serious than the recent debate about waiting too long
[06:05.19]in line at the bank!
[06:08.48]What is being done about this problem?
[06:12.27]Carol:Well,things have been improving.
[06:16.16]The conflicting interests of EU members and other nations have gradually
[06:23.35]been improved by fishing agreements.
[06:27.55]Barry:Well,it's good to know that the situation is coming under control...
[06:32.96]Carol:Actually,here are still a lot of problems.
[06:37.45]Critics argue that the British governments
[06:42.26]have not acted in the best interests of their own national fisheries.
[06:48.95]Many fishermen are angry about the new policies,
[06:54.15]EU quotas10 and fishing zones,and their resulting loss of livelihood11.
[07:01.85]Barry:Yes,but if there isn't fish conservation,these fishermen
[07:07.86]will not have jobs in the future anyway.
[07:12.04]Carol:Yes,I'm afraid the problem is quite complicated.
[07:16.72]Barry:On a lighter12 note,what kind of fish are British waters famous for?
[07:22.91]Carol:The most important British fish catches are cod,haddock,
[07:29.59]whiting,herring,mackerel,plaice,sole and various types of shellfish.
[07:37.69]I've heard that the fish farming industry has been expanding here in the UK.
[07:44.09]Tell our listeners a little about this subject,if you would,please.
[07:49.39]Carol:The fish-farming business is a large and expanding business,
[07:54.80]particularly in Scotland,and is chiefly concerned with salmon,trout and shellfish.
[08:03.60]Barry:Well,I'm afraid we're out of time.
[08:07.60]I want to thank our guest Carol Brady from the British Fisheries Council.
[08:13.90]Thank you,Carol.
