“Changing climates and moving fishes: implications of ecology and physiology for present management and future ocean conditions”

Abstract: Where do animals live under contemporary conditions? Where are their habitats headed? How will animals redistribute in the future? We need answers to these questions in order to sustainably harvest fish today, and to adjust our management strategies and economies to the changes that are occurring due to global change. Our work revealed that the iconic and endangered Napoleon wrasse has a home range larger than all other teleost reef fishes studied to date, with implications for the design of marine reserves. We have also identified a high trophic level species that inhabits the oxygen minimum layer, and may benefit from the future deoxygenation of the oceans. Our investigations of interacting climate stressors have the potential to improve ecosystem models, so we can better anticipate changes in the abundance and distribution of important fishery resources.
