Either fish are stupid, or the ABC is.

August 13, 2010 –  climate change has fish moving south

It shows about 30 per cent of the fish that live in south-east Australia have moved to new habitats and started to breed.

PETER LAST: We think climate change has something to this with this. There’s been a warming of the waters around Tasmania during that period.

July 8, 2014 – Warming oceans force fish south

New research shows the world’s warming oceans are forcing tropical fish to move south and putting other habitats at risk.
Dr Verges says it’s because of climate change.

Tropical species that perhaps were carried by this current, you know, they used to die once they hit certain cold temperatures but because the temperatures are now warmer overall, especially in the winter, species are starting to stay and form populations.

JAKE STURMER: Is there a fix? Is there any way to stop this?

ADRIANA VERGES: Well, we should definitely try and stop CO2 emissions. Any efforts to stop climate change are going to be key in at least slowing down this process.
