Report Card Published

Nov 30,2006 SACN


The first annual 'Report Card', detailing the effects of global warming on our marine environment, and the changes that are, and are expected to, happen there, has been published.

-Warm-water commercial species such as sea bass, red mullet and tuna are becoming more commonplace in our seas.

-Cold-water species, such as cod, have declined, with a possible link suggested between warmer sea temperatures and reduced populations of fish at the southern limit of their distribution range. (Fishing remains the main pressure on commercial fish stocks.)
