Tropical fish swimming north because of global warming

Climate change forces fish towards cooler waters. A study conducted by scientists from England, Canada, and the United States predicts that rising sea temperatures due to global warming will cause fish to have to travel some 40 kilometers per decade as they seek colder water nearer the poles. Those from the tropics will end up in northern seas, while species that thrive in cold waters may become extinct from the lack of a place to go as their homes become too warm.

We are grateful, researchers, for this critical information on the adversities of global warming. Let us quickly turn to eco-conscious lifestyles for our beautiful aquatic co-inhabitants to flourish once more.
