August 20, 2016 @ 1:00pm – How climate change will affect fish and fisheries
Janet Nye, Stony Brook University: Climate change may seem like something that will happen in the distant future. However, the ocean is already warming and fish are already responding in a variety of ways. Many fish species, including many that we find in Long Island, are changing their migration patterns and/or have become more or less abundant. These changes are not temporary and will continue along this trajectory, meaning that the people that rely on fish (fishermen, anglers, fish-consumers and fish-lovers) must adapt too. In this talk, I will show you some of the changes in fishes that we have seen in the last 50 years and what we might expect to happen in the future.
