Effects of climate change in the North Sea: more sole biomass, but smaller numbers

The North Sea is warming up and how will that affect fish species? Marine ecologist Karen van de Wolfshaar recently tested three climate change scenarios by combining a larval transport model for sole larvae with a DEB (Dynamic Energy Budget) model to determine the transition from spawn to young sole. Her publication in the ICES Journal of Marine Science shows that climate change has an effect on the growth and survival of juvenile sole (Solea solea) in several nurseries of the North Sea.
