Climate change impacts

The impacts of climate change on south-east Australian fisheries

Australia’s south east is a climate change ‘hotspot’, with marine waters warming at more than three times the global average. Warming will affect Australia’s fisheries and aquaculture sectors in different ways, according to the El Nemo South East Australia Program (SEAP).

Phenology and physiology

Climate change can alter the timing (phenology) of life cycle events and the physiology of an organism: impacting a species' reproduction, behaviour, feeding, interactions and where they live.

Land and sea species differ in climate change response

All animals occupy a piece of real estate on this earth, known as their geographic distributional range.  Various factors contribute to determining a species’ range, but temperature is up there in importance. This article compares the reponse of land and sea animals to climate warming.
