This video is about the Atlantic cod.
The latest research conducted by AWI experts that the chances of survival for the offspring of important fish species will dramatically worsen, if the 1.5 ° C target of the Paris Climate Agreement is not achieved. Under conditions of further warming and acidification of the ocean, Atlantic cod and its arctic relative polar cod would be forced to look for new habitats in the far north. Their populations could dwindle. If so, this could be disastrous, as the polar cod is the most important food source for Arctic seals and seabirds. In addition, fishers could lose the world’s most productive area for catching Atlantic cod, located to the north of Norway. However, the results of the study also show that a stringent climate policy could prevent the worst consequences for animals and humans: here.
Noise pollution from ships may scare Arctic cod from feeding grounds. As shipping traffic increases in the Arctic, fish are racing to get out of the way: here.
