Fish will disappear in the next few years due to the global warming, a new study by scientists at the University of Plymouth and the British Antarctic Survey found.
British scientists revealed that the fish will fade due to lack of oxygen and the high temperatures.
The study was able to analyze the crustaceans found in the South Pole; their size is smaller than in the past due to the level of oxygen.
“This is a major cause of concern, and it is certain that large species will be the victims of the oxygen-deficient ocean,” said Professor John Spicer, lead author of the study from Plymouth University.
The study suggests that failure to control the gases will have a far greater impact on future marine organisms than we expect.
Over 50 years, oxygen has fallen from 2% to 5%, which has an impact on marine organisms, and that many invertebrates will contract or become extinct if they cannot adapt, Spicer said.
“Understanding these effects will help us predict the fate of biodiversity as well as many mechanisms that help species survive,” said Dr Simon Morley, a British survey participant.
