The reading passage and the lecture both are about aquaculture, which is the methods of fish farming in a artificial environment. The author of the reading believes that there are several advantages of this, and he says it should be adopted for this reason but the lecture is against it. First of all, the author claims that it helps to save the coastal environment because the coastal environment consists of lean and freshwater where artificial fish farming would be established. Furthermore, he states that the pollution made by the settlement would clean by fish. The lecturer challenges this point. He mentions that recent research shows that it is not beneficial to protect nature, however, it even alters the balance of nature. Also, he points that it, even more, damage the natural shelter of the fish along with living organisms. Secondly, the author argues it supports the local economy, since it is located in the poor villages where unemployment rates are high, and it provides jobs for such unskilled workers. The lecturer, on the other hand, casts doubt on this argument. He raises the point that it would make far more unemployment in these areas because they rely only on farming, catching and selling fish, which is not a actual job. Finally, the author suggests that it soothes the pressure on the wild fish since many kinds of fishes disappearing due to limited supply of food. Furthermore, in the article,it is said that the number of wild fish would increase. The lecturer denies this specific statement made by the author. He puts and forth that there would be heavy dependence on wild fish because wild fish would eat farming fish. So, people might overhunt wild fish.
