Could climate change have an impact on the marine food web?

According to researchers at Stony Brook University, this phenomenon affects where large marine mammals are distributed relative to their prey, which could have serious implications for marine food web dynamics. Marine biologists from the University of North Carolina analyzed trends in water temperatures as well as distributions of fish, squid, and long-finned pilot whales from 1992 to 2016. Their findings indicate that the distribution of pilot whales moved more poleward than expected. Stony Brook University is a NYSERNet member. Learn more here:
