Scotland's west coast: climate change to drift away fish

(MENAFN) Based on researchers, as sea temperatures rise, Cod, herring and haddock might drift away from Scotland's west coast waters. Scientists at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (Sams) estimate that by 2100, species of the cold water will fade away from the west coast.

Fish are approaching "edge of their temperature tolerance range" by now, as researchers claim. On the other hand, they argue that due to global warming, other species will replace those that will disappear.

As Cod, herring and haddock are economically significant species to Scotland, scientists at Sams are spreading caution that climate change may possibly force the fish to drift away into colder waters further north to suit their environmental needs.
