Global warming shrinking fish size

leave a comment »

Here’s something for global warming deniers.  A new study just concluded that fish have been shrinking over time due to global warming, gradually losing half their body mass.

Fish have lost half their average body mass and smaller species are making up a larger proportion of European fish stocks as a result of global warming, a study published Monday has found.

Smaller fish tend to produce fewer eggs. They also provide less sustenance for predators – including humans – which could have significant implications for the food chain and ecosystem.
