During the past 18 months, Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolution Malin Pinsky has published two papers documenting and exploring the implications of the trend of marine species shifting to cooler waters as a result of climate change. He and his team have found that the shift northward is happening at different rates among the species not because of their biological differences but due to the rate and direction of climate change in their waters. A new website has been created with the data behind this research available to explain how the ecology, business and economics of sport and commercial fishing are connected to the effects of global warming and the difficulty in adapting to the resulting changes.
