Important Words: I love being outdoors and try to work out outside when I can. I spent most of my childhood outdoors.

This is important in my life because the quote talks about everything that I like to do outside and it explains who I am.

There are many people in my life who serve as a role model for me some of them are my Dad, and my Grandpa Sammons. I look up to them because they are hard workers and modest and nice people and I hope to become a person like them when I grow up. They have also been influential to lots of other people including my other brothers and my grandpa has been a role mold for my whole family.

From Reading the article "Fisheries officers nab eeler" I have learned more about the job of a fisheries officer. They found a man that was in possession of 700 kilograms of live eels. They were illegally stored on a farm, “

The article said "The alleged offender is not allowed to store any eels in freshwater, farm dams or areas closed to commercial fishing". This tells us of some of the things that people do and what fisheries officers have to do to keep the waters safe and make sure that no illegal trading is going on.
