Global Warming is Bad for Fishermen, Good for Jelly Fish

Jelly Fish

Global Warming is alarmingly showing its adverse effects on this world. It is altering the world's oceans, and is creating menace to the food source making it unfavorable to fish. On Monday, Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on how we have passed the irrevocable ocean ecosystems.

Trevor Manuel, who is the current Global Ocean Commission Co-Chair, said that global ocean is enduring the impetus of man made climate change.

As to climate change is at a slow pace, fish are likely to migrate to cooler water than adjusting to high temperatures. So, a bad news for the fishermen in tropical coasts, as fish move away from these coasts.

The levels of dissolved oxygen are lowering because of warmer seas. The increasing expansion of oxygen minimum zones pressurizes on the fish habitat. This has a negative impact on marine species and changes of extinction too.

The bad news for the marine species is Ocean acidification, especially for those species in the polar regions. The simultaneous drivers, i.e., the blend of decreased oxygen levels, acidification, raising temperatures and pollution, make coral reefs to survive.

But there are few species that adapt to the changes. For example, the gelatinous, peach colored Nomura Jellyfish has succeeded in overcoming these conditions, says Gwynn Guilford for Quartz.

The report is atrocious, nevertheless, we can only wish that these prophecies will impel citizens and government to take proper action.
