Starfish Die-Off and Salmon Reproduction Problems are Tied To Global Warming

These two articles discuss the massive starfish die-off and the problems facing Pacific salmon because of global warming.

Starfish are dying off in the Pacific and at least two local salmon species in the Puget Sound region may be near the end of their ability to naturally reproduce.

It’s unclear whether sea star populations will recover en mass in the coming years. Research published last year suggested that some sea stars might be capable of surviving the disease, offering hope that the animals will bounce back over time.
