Climate Change and Fisheries: If you can't stand the heat, get out of the ocean
Synopsis: Nowadays we hear a lot about the negative impacts of climate change on our society, economy, wildlife, and more. Fisheries biologists are working hard to understand all the potential effects that a changing climate can have on fish populations and their respective fisheries in order to manage those fisheries effectively and proactively. While the end result of climate change on the populations of different marine species are uncertain, we can predict that some species are at risk of perishing while others may flourish. We will review some of the ways that climate change can influence the future of our fisheries and provide examples of possible climate losers and winners.
