In parts of the Caribbean, the manatee, an endangered marine mammal, has long been hunted for its meat. Having noted the manatee hunter's expert knowledge of manatee's habits, local conservationists are encouraging the hunters to stop hunting and instead to take tourists on boat rides to see manatees. Tourist interest is high, so the plan has promise of achieving the twin goals of giving the former hunters a good income and helping ensure the manatees' survival.

Which of the following, if true, raises the most serious doubt about the plan's chance of success?

A. Many tourists who visit these parts of the Caribbean are uninterested in manatees and would not be willing to pay what the former manatee hunters would have to charge for boat rides to see manatees.

B. Recovery of the species would enable some hunting to continue without putting the manatees' survival in jeopardy again.

C. In areas where manatees have traditionally been hunted for food, local people could easily replace the manatee meat in their diets with other foods obtained from the sea.

D. There would not be enough former manatee hunters to act as guides for all the tourists who want to see manatees.

E. To maintain their current income, manatee hunters who switched to guiding tourists would have to use far larger boats and make many more trips into the manatee's fragile habit than they currently do.


I'll go for "E"

"twin goals of giving the former hunters a good income and helping ensure the manatees"

E attacks the former by stating that their boat size is not enough to maintain current income

A seems logical but it is contradicting the given evidence that "Tourist interest is high"

D actually provide better business chance to former hunters (Less competition)

B Out of scope
C Out of scope

I would go for E. It was specifically mentioned in the passage that the tourist's interest is high. Therefore, A contradicts to this statement.
