Our view: Water temps bringing major changes to our local sealife

(Continued)

Closer to home, for the second year in a row the North Shore of Massachusetts has been inundated with squid, a phenomenon also tied to water temperatures.

All of these changes are interrelated, happening all along our coastline.

As we worry about rising ocean levels eroding our coast and the possibility of more intense hurricanes, we should remember there are fundamental changes occurring under the waves, too. How they will change our future, and our local fisheries, is impossible to say. But it’s clear, based on what has happened over the past few years, that we will witness dramatic changes in the years to come.
