A

From a starting position of 3 meters below sea level, the fish is going down( descending) 7 meters per second

B

From a starting position of 7 meters below sea level, the fish is ascending 3 meters per second

C

From a starting position of 7 meters below sea level, the fish is descending 3 meters per second

D

From a starting position of 3 meters below sea level, the fish is ascending 7 meters per second
