Asia: physical features quiz
The many lakes of Asia vary considerably in size and origin. The largest of them—the Caspian and Aral seas—are the remains of larger seas. The Caspian has been fluctuating in size, and the Aral has been shrinking, primarily because its tributaries, the Amu Darya and the Syr Darya , have been tapped heavily for irrigation purposes. The basins of Lakes Van , Sevan , and Urmia are, furthermore, encircled by lava, and Lake Telets was gouged out by ancient glaciation.
If you catch a small carp, nine inches or less, the agency is asking that you put it on ice or freeze it and contact them immediately. If you are unable to keep the fish, the TWRA asks you to submit photos of the fish in hand and send it to them. You can contact the TWRA by phone at or toll-free at , by fax at , or by email at ans.
