A Lake Is Full of Fish Again – level 2

19-02-2021 07:00

Lake Dojran is in North Macedona and Greece. It has an area of 43 km2, and it is 10 meters deep.

In the 1990s, farmers used the water from Lake Dojran, and the lake almost disappeared. There were no fish and fishermen lost work. The impact on tourism was strong, too. Both countries decided to save the lake and North Macedonia pumped underground water to fill the lake. In recent years, it rained a lot, which helped increase the level of water, too. Now, fishermen say that there are more fish in the lake than before.

Scientists say that there is still not enough water and that the lake is dirty, and it has an impact on animals and plants living there. Fishermen are happy though and they believe that there will be more good news in the future.

Difficult words: 2 (the ‘2’ means squared that shows how much area a place has), disappear (when something does not exist anymore), impact (a big change), increase (to make or become greater).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
