English

             The article “’Extremely close to being gone forever’: B.C. fisheries manager says feds failing Interior steelhead” discusses the decline in Thompson River steelhead salmon populations in British Columbia waters (Kelly, 2017). British Columbia’s fisheries manager worries the iconic fish may be on the brink of extinction in this region and conservationists believe the prized fish may soon be gone forever if nothing changes.

My first thought when it comes to aesthetic is the assorted memes relating to this song: https://soundcloud.com/bad-782004945/macintosh-plus-420 and the vapourwave musical movement. Aesthetic in the sense of these memes and the vapourwave music genre means chill, and smooth, while pleasing to the ears and eyes. I feel that these characteristics encompass the true meaning of aesthetic, which describes the beauty and taste of a person or thing.
