Where are the fish going?

An article in the journal Science has provided evidence that ocean animals are consistently keeping pace with the speed and direction of climate changes such as ocean temperature and water movement.

‘Researchers have compiled 43 years of data related to the movement of 128 million animals from 360 species living around North America, including commercial staples such as lobster, shrimp and cod. They found that 70 percent of shifts in animals’ depth and 74 percent of changes in latitude correlated with regional-scale fluctuations in ocean temperature.’

Makes you wonder if the human animal is doing the same thing?
