A changing ocean for future fish
Anthropogenic CO2 released in the atmosphere has been increasing in the past two centuries; the excess of heat and CO2 is absorbed by the ocean, leading to an increasingly warmer and more acidified ocean. Here we address the consequences of warming and acidification on marine fish. Can growth, behaviour and physiology be affected by temperatures of +2° or 3°C? Do acidified waters mean trouble for fish? And which other environmental constraints can add to the pressure of fish living in a future ocean.
