Coastal communities in the tropics may lose their fish resources as climate change warms the oceans. Canadian scientists have tracked the warming seas by monitoring the movement of fish species. Fish that used to be confined to warmer waters are now moving further north and south, or deeper, as sea temperatures rise. The authors highlight the implications for coastal communities, particularly in the tropics, who depend on local fish stocks for food or income.
