Wild fish aren’t the only ones feeling the squeeze from climate change. As warmer, lower-oxygen waters spread, domesticated fish are suffering as well.
In Chile, for instance, an algal bloom in 2016 killed nearly 12 percent of the country’s farmed salmon at a cost of $800 million. Scientists have now attributed that bloom to conditions that arose as a result of climate change, according to a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports.
But it won’t be the last time climate change is tied to die-offs in aquaculture operations, scientists say, and harmful algal blooms may be the prime cause of those losses.
