Speaker: Thanks Mr. Sutton. The next thing… (fade)

SECTION 4

You will hear a lecture about marine life.

Host: How many fish in the sea?” is a hot topic for many [……………………………]. Today we have invited a famous scientist who spent [……………………………]in studying [……………………………]life to -a give us an introduction of the latest [……………………………]called “The Census of Marine Life”. Let’s welcome Alok Jha.

Alok: Thanks Ella. The Census of Marine Life has been the biggest and most [……………………………]attempt ever to answer that question—how many fish are there in the world’s oceans? The Census of Marine Life, which hopes to indicate a [……………………………]of marine life, estimates that there are more than [……………………………]species in the seas. The study covers from coast to the open : ocean, from the [……………………………]to the deeps, from little things like [……………………………]to large things such as fish and [……………………………]. Our team of over [……………………………] scientists from all over the world have spent the past ten years [……………………………]25 regions, from the Antarctic through the [……………………………]and tropical seas to the Arctic to count the different types of plants and animals. The findings [……………………………]that crustacean such as [……………………………], crabs, krill and [……………………………]accounts for a fifth of the number of species in the world’s oceans and half of the world’s marine species is [……………………………](squid and octopus) and fish (including sharks). The charismatic species usually used in [……………………………]environmental protection for example whales, sea lions, turtles and sea birds account for less than [……………………………] of the species in the world’s oceans. The study has also [……………………………]on major fields of concern for [……………………………]. In every region, they got the same experience of a major [……………………………]of what we were usually very abundant fish [……………………………]or [……………………………]or crustaceans that are now only 5-10% of what they used to be. The main reasons include overfishing, degraded habitats and pollution. But more problems are presented: rising water temperatures and [……………………………]brought by climate change and the growth in areas of the ocean that are low in oxygen and, therefore unable to support marine life. The Census of Marine Life shows that [……………………………]seas such as the Mediterranean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, China’s [……………………………], Baltic, and the Caribbean have the most [……………………………]biodiversity. The pollutions in enclosed seas are mainly from chemicals or [……………………………]that people throw into it. Dense coastal populations of humans also tend to be packed along enclosed seas, meaning rising [……………………………]and extraction of more biodiversity from the water.

(5 seconds pause)

The Mediterranean Sea, which contains around [……………………………]identified species, has been a region with high threat. Scientists in our team studying the [……………………………]identified problems related to increased litter from shipping and [……………………………]across the sea as well as bombs [……………………………]during the Kosovo war. The Mediterranean also has to face problems with [……………………………]species displacing the creatures that already live there. The Census of Marine Life shows that the Mediterranean Sea has the most [……………………………]— more than [……………………………] among all the [……………………………] regions that have been [……………………………]. It looks like that the region with coral reefs has always had a very high rate of spéciation. It also has a very diverse range of habitats from the [……………………………]regions of the oceans to large regions of [……………………………], which can afford coral reefs.

The most diverse regions [……………………………]by The Census of Marine Life are around Australian and Japanese waters which contain more than [……………………………]species each and are among the most [……………………………]diverse in the world. Next in line are the oceans off China, the Mediterranean sea and the gulf of Mexico. Besides algae and the [……………………………]and [……………………………]that travel around the sea [……………………………]has been regarded as the most “[……………………………]” marine creature by The Census of Marine Life. Its presence was recorded in around a quarter of the world’s seas.

And for every marine species of all kinds known to science, scientists of The Census of Marine Life [……………………………]that at least four have yet to be discovered. For example, about [……………………………] of species of fish have been discovered but for most other groups likely less than one-third are known. Our research team has found the number of marine fish species was about [……………………………], and was growing at around [……………………………] a year. So scientists estimate that there are almost [……………………………]fish species in the world’s oceans. The most fruitful potential areas for discovery include the [……………………………], deep seas and southern [……………………………]. Although most ocean [……………………………]still remain nameless and their numbers unknown at the end of The Census of Marine Life, we still gained an important and exciting start.

Host: Definitely. That’s a great [……………………………].

Alok: Thank you very much.

Host: OK. Thanks to Alok for giving us the amazing information about marine life. Next week we will (fade)…
