Seamposium: The Gill-Oxygen Limitation Theory (GOLT)
Esporles, April 15, 2021. On April 22 at 5:00 p.m. we will get back to the cycle of joint seminars with CEAB, ICM, ICMAN and IIM entitled "Seamposium: Dealing with new frontiers of marine research".
TITLE: The Gill-Oxygen Limitation Theory (GOLT)
SPEAKER: Prof. Daniel Pauly, University of British Columbia
ABSTRACT: Both marine and freshwater fishes are facing the challenges posed by climate change-induced increase in water temperature and habitat deoxygenation, which results in disruptions to their life history and reproductive phenology in addition to distributional shifts and structural changes in the communities of which they are part. These disruptions will intensify the deleterious effects of fisheries on fish communities. This presentation will show how the author’s Gill-Oxygen Limitation Theory (GOLT), and its various corollaries, can help explain these changes, and render superfluous the species- and local-specific (ad hoc) hypotheses that are usually advanced to explain these changes.
Date and Time: Thursday April 22, 17:00h
