Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

In the following chapter we consider changes that have been observed in the distribution of fish species over the past century, we look at how fish growth rate and larval survival has been influenced by changing climate and we consider the role played by fish in wider marine food-webs (as prey or predators). We then consider what might happen to marine fish in the future, in the face of predicted temperature rises, extreme weather events and ocean acidification. We examine gaps in the current knowledge base and consider some of the socio-economic consequences that might arise as a result of climate impacts on marine fish.
