Climate Links

Rutgers in collaboration with NOAA Fisheries, built a website called OceanAdapt http://www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov/ecosystems/climate/activities/oceanadapt where users can search and download data on the geographic and depth ranges of more than 650 species of fish and invertebrates and track how those distributions have changed over time: a valuable tool for the fishermen, fishery managers, and scientists who are grappling with the challenge of adapting to a changing ocean environment.
