New Studies Explore Potential Impacts of Climate Change on Arctic Marine Species

Today, NOAA Fisheries scientists released the findings of two research projects that shed light on how climate change may affect some Arctic marine species. 

In what may be the first successful attempt to hatch and grow Arctic cod in a laboratory setting in North America, scientists share early insights into the influence of temperature and competition from more southern cod species on Arctic cod survival.  The second study provides some good news about the ability of northern rock sole to withstand changes due to lower pH levels in the ocean, or an increasingly more acidic ocean.
