Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Climate change is driving changes in the ocean that have adverse consequences (e.g. thermal stress) for the marine biota. Though the responses of a few marine taxa to climate change are well studied (e.g. corals), there is dearth of data corresponding to the species response to climate change other than corals from the marine environment. This special issue would focus on the impacts of climate change on the abundance, distribution, calcification of marine fauna. Additionally, this issue will also include investigations on the impact of climate change on fisheries and aquaculture. Application of potential fish hybrids that can tackle climate change induced droughts and the applications of certain hybrid taxa with increased environmental tolerances to exploit degraded aquatic environments.
