Fish Rapidly Shifting Ranges following Rapid Temp Changes

Warming waters caused rapid -- and opposite -- shifts in connected marine communities,
Cell Press, November 8. 2018.


"Two connected marine ecosystems--the Eastern English Channel and Southern North Sea--experienced big and opposite changes in their fish communities over a 30-year period”

“Rapid warming drove smaller ocean fishes to shift abruptly northward from one ecosystem to the other."

Warming Disrupting Fishing Grounds
“...increase in the frequency and severity of climate oscillations and extreme warming events could trigger shifts in the distribution and abundance of species with profound consequences for the way ecosystems around the world function.”

"This warming caused an abrupt change in fish communities as small, rapidly maturing fishes, particularly pelagic fishes, simultaneously decreased in the English Channel and increased in the North Sea,."

Big Switch
"This suggests both that fishes shifted northward between the ecosystems and that the English Channel became an unfavorable environment for certain fishes while the North Sea became a more favorable environment."

Two Year Quick Big Switch
“While the researchers weren't surprised to find changes in species' abundances and distributions in response to human impacts and warming, they were surprised to find an inverse shift in entire fish communities within connected ecosystems. They were also surprised by the exceptional speed of those changes, as the "functional inversion" occurred only one or two years after a major temperature rise.”

Bigger Changes Coming
“The findings suggest that warming events in the future could have major and long-lasting impacts on marine ecosystems and fisheries.”

Support Tahoe to Whitney

The Tahoe to Whitney Trail Guide and Magazine are walked, written, funded, and supported by my efforts, with the help of kindred spirits and my sister.

We offer valuable Trail Guide, Skills, Weather, News and Analysis.

My goal is to get you out to see your natural and social potential. Help me keep this unique resource accessible and expanding towards its potential. We've a lot of miles to cover ahead...

If you feel these efforts are valuable, I'm cordially inviting you to support them, here:



I am currently working towards publishing the completed guide between Tahoe & Yosemite as an e-book, while converting this "blog" to a fine magazine format. You will like the results! Help Tahoe to Whitney reach its potential!
