Scientists Show Warm-water Habitats Help Fuel Coldwater Fish
Coldwater fish like salmon depend on warm-water habitats more than previously thought, according to new research from the Oregon State University.
In the midst of climate change, this research has important implications for habitat protection and restoration efforts, which traditionally prioritize cold bodies of water instead of those that heat up during summer months, the researchers said in a press release by Sean Nealon.
“We show in this paper by devaluing habitats that are warm in summer we miss their critical ...
