‘Climate Change’ Could Shrink Fish In The Future Or Something

Of course, since the Cult of Climastrology is making this prognostication, fish will most likely grow by 30% and you’ll have a massive flounder nibbling on your toes at the beach

Climate change could shrink fish size by 30 per cent: Study

Fish are expected to shrink in size by 20 to 30 per cent if ocean temperatures continue to climb due to climate change, a study has warned.

The study by researchers at the University of British Columbia in Canada provides a deeper explanation of why fish are expected to decline in size.

“Fish, as cold-blooded animals, cannot regulate their own body temperatures. When their waters get warmer, their metabolism accelerates and they need more oxygen to sustain their body functions,” said William Cheung, associate professor at the Institute for the Ocean and Fisheries.

“There is a point where the gills cannot supply enough oxygen for a larger body, so the fish just stops growing larger,” said Cheung.

One has to wonder, if fish can’t get as big when the seas get warmer, then how were fish so much bigger during the times when the seas were much, much warmer? Why do fish get pretty big in the warm waters of the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and so forth? Eh, doesn’t matter something may possibly might could we feel happen in the future.
