Climate Change & North Sea Marine Life by City-Tech blogger Mariano Huaman

Climate change is affecting the marine life in the North Sea. In 2016 water temperatures in the North Sea reached an average of 11­° C. This increase in temperature is affecting the residents of those waters, but at the same time is good news for new immigrant species. Sardine and anchovy populations are increasing in the North Sea. Christian Buschbaum, a marine ecologist, gives these creatures the term “Ecological Sleepers”. According to Buschbaum these species “wake up” when temperatures rise in the North Sea because it causes conditions where they can reproduce more easily. If the water temperature gets higher, there will be more species migrating to the North Sea. However, there will also be species that will not like the increase in temperature. Cod is being affected by the high temperatures and this species is migrating to other areas.
