I grew up in Westfield, with you as my state legislative representative. In the course we learned about one of the biggest, arguably the biggest, threat facing the world’s oceans today: overfishing. Overfishing is when fish are being taken out of the ocean faster than they can reproduce. This is occurring all over the world, including right off our very own shores. This has a myriad of impact in the marine ecosystem and well beyond.
Firstly in the Bahamian society the absence of father figure in the home is predominant. Many males in the Bahamian society have unprotected sexual intercourse with a variety of women and impregnating them defining their true masculinity. Later the irresponsible men leave the mother to nurture and take care of the child by themselves. As a result of lack of father figures in the home many children tend to rebel against their mothers having no father figure too discipline them. Many of the inhumane crimes that take place are committed by young adults from single parent home.

On the other hand, human activity which threatens the coral reefs at the Caribbean Sea is tourism industry. This is because, tourism has both direct and indirect impact on coral reefs namely snorkeling, diving and boating can cause direct physical damage to coral reefs. Besides that, fishing and collecting corals for souvenir
If more people knew about this situation, more support would grow to save these gorgeous fish. It is hard to pass laws and regulations, without support.

Fish bombing will eventually interrupt the marine ecosystem as it will cause pollution towards to marine and the most importantly it will damage the coral. Thus, marine living organisms like fish, prawn and lobster will undergo loss of habitats and food source. As a results, the marine
Petrol released by boats and factories, is then flowed into the sea, harming the coral reefs as well as sea life. Nutrient, increasing, encourage algal blooms that cause a population explosion of devastating crown-of-thorns starfish. Since 1985 coral cover has declined by half, along the Australia Great Barrier Reef, the population of starfish being responsible for 40% of this loss. Tourism also affects the coral reefs, because of people taking away the coral and killing a whole population of polyps. Tourism boats as well damage the coastal reef by crushing and destroying it when
People have been fishing since the beginning of time, and right know that is being threatend because of over fishing. I am a big fan of seafood and so are millions upon millions of other people. The problem is that people fail to realize the problems caused by over fishing because they only have to drive a short distance to a store, buy their fish, and go about their daily lives.

When you hear about the Bahamas and its people you may paint a picture of love, respect, friendly, Christianity, tranquility, prepossessing, and most of all paradise. But you won’t see the true Bahamas until you stay a little while in the Bahamas. Bahamians loves to tear down each other why? I have no idea may be it makes them to feel better.
For transportation and communication, most Bahamians own a car. Mail boats provide transportation for mail, people, and freight between Nassau and other islands. There are postal systems most smaller settlements throughout the islands. There is no delivery to homes or businesses, since you have to pick up your mail yourself.

As a result, the British sent Captain Rogers to The Bahamas in 1718 to drive the pirates from The Bahamas and regain control for the British. In the 1780’s, many British settlers relocated to the newly formed United States. Most loyalist also returned to England.
