Study: Fish Species Forecast to Migrate Hundreds of Miles Northward as U.S. Waters Warm

This article discusses how warming oceans will cause fish species to migrate further north than normal.

A study of 686 North American fish species forecasts a bigger migration with global warming than scientists had expected. Coastal communities will be left to adapt.

Globally, climate change could take a $10 billion bite out of fishing revenues by 2050, with developing countries suffering the most, according to Vicky Lam, a University of British Columbia fisheries scientist who co-authored a 2016 study quantifying the financial cost of climate change to fisheries.
