at last I've graduated to something important food preparation
我终于从一些重要的食物准备工作毕业了
all the fish needs something special to eat and all of that food has to be prepared in advance
所有鲨鱼都需要食用一些专门食物,必须提前准备好
squid are one of the main items on the menu
鱿鱼是鲨鱼的主菜之一
and they have to be prepared by removing the beaks
必须把鱿鱼的喙摘掉
and then cutting them into appropriately sized pieces
然后将鱿鱼切成大小适当的块状,
all right buddy you're getting debate
好吧,伙计,该有争论了
for the tentacles open, pop it like a pimple, from the bottom
因为触须是张开的,就像一个小疙瘩,从底部鼓起
yeah and then pull it out with your fingers
是的,然后用手指把它拔出来
oh thanks, oh look some squid go, let's go
哦,谢谢,看这里的鱿鱼,我们动手吧
Oh delicious, mm-hmm, this would be a bad time to cut yourself
哦,太好吃了,嗯嗯,小心,不要割伤自己
okay so I have some little squid rings
好了,我做了一些鱿鱼圈
yep so then we'll put that
好,我们把它放好
Did you fry them, no
你炒过鱿鱼吗,没有
So this is a large squid, this is what the sharks eat

so the beak is much larger here

food preparation takes a lot of time and it has to be done four times a day
准备食物要花很多时间,而且一天要准备四顿
so far there's nothing here that I really want to eat

you need you need a squid, no I wouldn't
你需要,你需要一只鱿鱼,不,我不需要
next I learned to burp the air out of the swim bladder of a smelt

then I remove the row from capelin
然后将其取出
the eggs are food for smaller animals in the exhibits and the fish themselves are fed to larger animals
在展览馆中,鱼卵是小型动物的食物,而鱼则是大型动物的食物
fish eggs and there's no there's no fresh, they smell very fishy

finally it's out to the Got, the giant ocean tank to start feeding some of the fish

I'm surprised to learn that the fish are hand fed
得知是人工喂养,我很讶异
it's hard to believe that, with this big tank, we have to actually sit here and feed specific fish
