Traditional fish and chips in danger as warming seas hit cod stocks

Traditional fish and chips are in danger of disappearing because of climate change

Scientists warn the dwindling cod stock is in further danger as sea temperatures rise.

Seas around the British Isles have shown significant warming over the last 40 years.


And further rises are expected, warn researchers.

Projections over the next 70 years shows an increase in warm-adapted fish like red mullet, Dover sole and John Dory.

But the cold-water loving species like cod and monkfish are in decline.

The universities of Exeter and Bristol, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aqua-culture Science and the Met Office all took part in the research.

They said declining species may need help and there will be implications for the wider ecosystem.

Dr Katherine Maltby, lead author, said:

“Climate change will continue to affect fish stocks in this sea region.”
