The Courier Mail reports:
THE ocean current off the coast of Australia made famous in Finding Nemo has moved 350km south and is accelerating toward the pole, a draft international climate change report has found.
And with it so too are moving some species of shark and large fish such as Tuna, it has warned…
The report of the IPCC’s Working Group II, due to be released next March in Yokohama, Japan, claims that the oceans off the south east of Australia, which would include NSW are warming faster than anywhere else – and could rise 10 per cent above the average expected for the rest of the world.
It claimed that it was already having an impact on the distribution of coastal fish, and growth rates of some fish species.
“Observed impacts on marine species have been reported from a range of trophic levels,” the report said.
