Fish getting smaller as the oceans warm
Description: Changes in ocean and climate systems could lead to smaller fish, according to a new study. The researchers used computer modeling to study more than 600 species of fish from oceans around the world and found that the maximum body weight they can reach could decline by 14-20 per cent between years 2000 and 2050, with the tropics being one of the most impacted regions.
