A Lake Is Full of Fish Again – level 1

19-02-2021 07:00

Lake Dojran is in North Macedonia and Greece. It is the third largest lake in Macedonia. It has an area of 43 km2. It is 10 meters deep.

Farmers use the water for their fields and animals in the 1990s. Farmers use up almost all the water from the lake. There are no fish. Fishermen do not have work. Tourists do not come.

North Macedonia and Greece want to solve the problem. They fill the lake. They use water from the ground. Fish return to the lake. Fishermen are happy.

Scientists say that the water is dirty. There are many problems. It seems though that the situation will get better.

Difficult words: area (the size of flat space or ground), 2 (the ‘2’ means squared that shows how much area a place has), use up (to use almost everything), fisherman (a person who catches fish)
