American lobsters feeling the heat

1 post in this topic

Rising temperatures along the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean will force American lobsters farther offshore and into more northern waters, a new study finds.

Climate models project that ocean bottom temperatures in the Atlantic along the U.S. East Coast may rise by up to 4.3 degrees Celsius (7.7 degrees Fahrenehit) by the end of the century. The new study's results show these rising temperatures will likely make conditions in the American lobster's southernmost range—less hospitable in the future for juveniles, pushing them farther north and into habitats farther offshore.
