Global warming and fish distributions

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

It is not very often that my scientific papers are picked up by the media, and it is always fun to see the spin that they put to it. One of my last papers, in which I describe how global warming may facilitate faunal exchanges between the tropical Indian and Atlantic oceans, has received some attention. Here is the link for their take on the paper:

And for those that are really interested, there is a copy of the paper in PDF format at:

Congrats! I hope this helps you get more funding! ;)

BTW - There was a paper in the Canadian J of Fisheries and Aquatic Sci by David Welch a few years ago that forecasted the possible demise of salmon in the North Pacific due to CO2-induced global warming. :)

Ditto, especially on the funding side!! Soft money certainly follows media attention. In fact, I was recently told that one very large US government isn't really isn't interested in the science of the projects it supports, only whether they're news worthy or not.

Global warming is certainly making its presence felt. Along this coast the distribution of intertidal inverts is creeping northwards as sea temperatures rise. It no longer takes an El Nino to get fish here. In fact, there are established populations of warm water fish in coastal power plant discharge areas.
