Posted Fri Jun 27 2008: from University of Rhode Island, via EurekAlert:
Climate change causing significant shift in composition of coastal fish communities http://apocadocs.com/s.pl?1214566395
A detailed analysis of data from nearly 50 years of weekly fish-trawl surveys in Narragansett Bay and adjacent Rhode Island Sound has revealed a long-term shift in species composition, which scientists attribute primarily to the effects of global warming. According to Jeremy Collie, professor of oceanography at the University of Rhode Island's Graduate School of Oceanography, the fish community has shifted progressively from vertebrate species (fish) to invertebrates (lobsters, crabs and squid) and from benthic or demersal species those that feed on the bottom to pelagic species that feed higher in the water column. "This is a pretty dramatic change"... said Collie.
