Sharpening climate change predictions for marine fishes
Climate change will impact fishes in complex ways, from high-energy-demand species such as yellowfin tuna, to more sedentary animals such as tilapia. While the ability to predict these impacts is essential to adapting to climate-change, our current understanding of the effects of ocean acidification, deoxygenation and warming is too limited to be of widespread use. Our team is implementing a plan to develop species-specific models that could be used as one part of a new generation of climate change predictors. As Gen Del Raye and Kevin Weng explain, these models will include Argos tracking data, physiological experiments/observations, and climate variables to provide a roadmap for fisheries scientists and conservationists.
