Rising Water Temperature to make Fish Incapable to Reproduce

Rising Water Temperature to make Fish Incapable to Reproduce

Scientists have come up with findings to suggest that global warming is having adverse effects on fish to an extent that they will become unable to reproduce.

According to scientists, warming temperatures are making fish lazy, posing the risk to making it difficult for fish to catch food or reproduce.

A 2012 study of global water temperatures has revealed that fact that nearly 90% of heat added to earth's atmosphere since 1960shas gone straight into the oceans. Water temperatures have increased even at depths of 2,950 feet.

The latest research on effects of rising water temperatures on fish was conducted by James Cook University in Queensland, Australia.

Jacob Johansen is one of the researchers from James Cook and he studied the effects on warmer oceans on fish. He said global warming is highly likely to affect the swimming ability of many fish species. And it will also take a toll on their ability to grow and reproduce.

He said, "The loss of swimming performance and reduced ability to maintain important activities, like moving to a spawning site to reproduce, could have major implications for the future distribution and abundance of these species".

According to National Geographic, global water temperatures have risen 1 degree Fahrenheit on average over the past century.
