Squid and Chips – level 2

15-06-2021 15:00

Fish and chips is a famous British dish. Two types of fish are used in the dish. The problem is that there are not enough of these fish. Their numbers are down. This is because the sea is getting too warm for these fish.

If there are not enough fish, the dish will be in danger. Scientists say that the fish must be replaced by squid. Squid numbers are growing fast in the seas around Britain.

Difficult words: dish (a type of food), replace (when something is replaced, a new thing takes its place), squid (a sea animal which looks a like an octopus).
