Global warming has been affecting Earth for years now. Lately it has been causing
aquatic animals to migrate to other bodies of water than where they were originally from. It is being caused by ice melting, climates, and ice clogging passage ways. Animals like whales, oceanic fishes, and stream fish have all been affected.
Bowhead whales are moving from opposites sides of the Canadian High Artic to the Northwest Passage. It is normally clogged by ice which connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. There have been other signs that the amount of these air-breathing animals’ traversed to the Artic when the ice cover shrinks. There are new satellite tracking data that track the whales and shows that they are in the Northwest Passage.
Climate in Southern California region are effecting the distribution of oceanic fishes. Scientist have discovered this by using larval fish data, which is one of the types of oceanic fishes moving, from years past. These species respond to environmental changes in the areas where they live. Eight of these species have moved a great amount from 1950-1998, because of different climates changes with temperature. With these climate changes it is having a great effect on the distribution, on the abundance of oceanic fishes, and where the live.
In the nine French river units there are many species of stream fish. Stream fish are very affected by climate change, because they are exothermic fish. They are also affected by physical things that may stop them from moving to a new place. These species are deleterious effect on climate change where as the species that are down the stream just expand their living spaces.
In conclusion, animals have been moving to different places to survive, because of global warming. All animals are being affected by this not just the ones that live on land but the ones in the water too. All in all no matter if they are the size of a whale or a fish it affects the tiniest species in the world.
How are humans also affecting this migrating problem?
How are the animals that are migrating, to new places, are affecting the other animals that already live there?
How do these animals migrating affect us humans?
