Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 LETHBRIDGE HERALD uvcvmovr Ask Andy FATAL WATER Andy sends a complete 20- voluine set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Wanda Poteat'. age 14. of Gastoma. No. for her question Does stagnant water kill It is true that certain fishes die when dumped into stag- nant water And. as some of us a pet goldfish suffers when the water in his tank becomes stale. But some species can survive in stag- nant water and a few species can survive even through a waterless drought Most lishes prefer the tur- bulent waters of swift streams or tossing waves. The teeming tishing grounds off New- toundland and Peru are regions where cool ocean currents stir up the salty sea water There is a reason why tishes are more frisky in mov- ing especially where the surface water comes in contact with the air. like all need oxygen to keep going. They must lake their oxygen dissolved in and the water gets most of its dissolv- ed oxygen from the air. The spray trom ocean waves ab- sorbs gases from the air. so do swill streams and breezy lakes Even the surfaces of smooth water absorb oxygen trom the air But under certain con- a stretch of still water may lose most of its dissolved cm gen It there is no oxygen at all in the stagnant the fishes die from suf- t oca t ion Our watery world is home to more than '30.000 different lishes and each species is ad- justed to life in its own special niche Most species live in the salu though some are at home near the sunlit some near ihe tidal shores and others out in deep water Most treshwater fish soon perish in saltwater. But many other species alternate between saltwater and freshwater during their lile cycles Eels are born at sea. live most of their lives in freshwater streams and return again to the sea These lively tourists would not sur- vive in stagnant water The electric eel is at home in the sluggish streams of the Amazon. Here oxygen is in short supply. Many other species lead lazy lives in still water where ox- is scarce But no iish can survive in stagnant water where there is not oxygen at all Each species is used to its own niche and as a rule the t risky types live in turbulent water where there is plenty of oxygen. You would expect to tmd plenty ot dissolved ox- ygen along the where the water is tossed by the tides But tides are changeable sometimes this water contains more oxygen and sometimes less. Amazing as it may the fishes who live in these neighborhoods are adjusted to these changes They are more active when oxygen is plentiful and their bodies are adjusted to change with the rhythm of the tides.

WIDEN CUBAN TRADE BUENOS AIRES Argentina and Cuba have widened their commercial relations with the signing of a formal pact on maritime trade. The details were not spelled but the accord partially fulfilled the ob- jectives of billion loan given Fidel Castro's regime earlier That loan stipulated that shipments from Argen- tina to Cuba would be carried in equal proportions by ships of the two nations.
