Talk 12/7 – Understanding Global Warming Impacts on Fish
December 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Gill-Oxygen Limitation Theory: Origin, Scope and Utility in Understanding Global Warming Impacts on Fish
Speaker: Dr. Daniel Pauly, University of British Columbia Professor, PI: Sea Around Us Project
There is need for a broad guiding theory based on first principles to interpret the many ways that fishes (and invertebrates) are affected by increasing temperatures and the deoxygenation of the oceans. Gill-Oxygen Limitation Theory (GOLT) is the only current comprehensive theory that can accommodate the many impacts of ocean warming on growth, migrations, and behaviors. Dr. Pauly will elaborate on his recent paper on GOLT (and controversy), and provide context to help understand the increasingly nuanced global biotic and conservation implications of a warming ocean.
