Climate Change Impacts on Great Lakes Fishes

Climate Change Impacts on Great Lakes Fishes

The Great Lakes support numerous fishes of ecological, economic, and cultural importance. How will Great Lakes fish communities respond to projected changes in temperature and precipitation? This webinar will provide information about:

  • Expected impacts of climate change on Great Lakes fish communities
  • How interactions between climate change and other human-caused stressors may drive unanticipated change in Great Lakes fish production
  • Needed information gaps that will improve our ability to forecast the response of fish communities to climate change
