Waste and Bahamas Fishing

Good Essays
The Bahamas

The Bahamas with its capital city of Nassau is a Chain of islands in the Atlantic Ocean, northeast Cuba and southeast Florida. Absolute location of Bahamas is 24 15 N, 76 00 W. The island of the Bahamas does not have much natural recourse so they have to import food. This makes prices high. This is good for environment because they do not over use their water supply for farming, water and soil are clean because they do not use toxic chemicals. They do have salt, aragonite and timber what they export to other countries. Bahamas also use for oil transportation from other countries. I think that is really bad for Bahamas because ship pollution makes sea dirty. They irrigate only 10 km2. It’s show that they use really small peaces of land all over the islands. Total renewable about water is not available or they do not have water to use. And they need to import water, use rain water or wash sea water. Labor forces are (by occupation): agriculture (5%), industry (5%), tourism (50%) and other (40%). Tourism is main business at the Bahamas. And it’s show that climate at Bahamas good for relaxation and that many famous people and politics spend time at Bahamas. But every business has two sides bad and good. The same with tourism in Bahamas. I think that good side is money and bad are: trash, planes, ships and hotels. All of it account for dirty air, ship pollution, death of many rare species of birds and animals. Economy growing by tourism, agriculture and industry. Agriculture economy is based on growing citruses and vegetables. Industry is based on oil, salt, timber and aragonite. By that there economy grows and country grows to. Also people at the Bahamas fishing, but illegal. As they use dynamite and fishing nets, this leads to the destruction of coral reefs. Also they are solid waste disposal. That’s bad because it is ruined and all trash after rot its have bad smell and pollute nature also.
