The contrasting fortunes of Atlantic cod in warming oceans

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, the Times and Scientific American both covered new research that suggests warming oceans and a fishing ban have led to a recovery in Atlantic cod off the coast of Canada.


But a little further south, the story is less positive. Another study, published today in Science, finds that warming waters in the Gulf of Maine, off the US Atlantic coast, are contributing to the population decline in the heavily-fished region.

So, how is warming helping one population of cod while hindering another? Carbon Brief takes a look at the research.
