Jellyfish Expected to Increase as Fish Die Due to Global Warming

This photo by Raimundo Valentim shows a terrible fishkill. Scientists say that fishes are dying in our seas because the waters have become warmer. They say that fish need more oxygen in a warmer environment and that many dies because there is less oxygen in water with a higher temperature than usual. Jellyfish, on the other hand, thrive in warm waters and are expected to proliferate, changing the ocean ecosystem. Combat global warming. Plant more trees and use less fossil fuel.
