Climate change, cod decline, changing life in Atlantic: oceanographer

Climate change is partly responsible for a rapid change in the ecosystem along the continental shelf waters of the Northwest Atlantic, which has so far been blamed on the collapse of the cod stocks, according to a U.S. oceanographer.
“It is becoming increasingly clear that Northwest Atlantic shelf ecosystems are being tested by climate forcing from the bottom up and overfishing from the top down,” said Charles Greene, director of the Ocean Resources and Ecosystems Program at Cornell University.
