Fish migration and climate change

Fish migration and climate change

40 40 people viewed this event.

Rivers and streams are fundamental for living beings – there is no life without water. Some of the species that inhabit these waterways make long journeys – at times incredibly long and perilous journeys – to the sea or vice versa, as many fish need to migrate to complete their biological cycle. Most of these journeys are now at risk, due to global warming that affects water resources and because of artificial barriers that we have created to produce electricity. To further aggravate an already critical situation, many non-native species that we introduced are endangering native fish. In this open conference, dedicated to the general public, we will see what can be done and what is being done to allow fish to continue their migration.

The conference is part of “Un grado e mezzo” festival, a public event dedicated to the general public, with the aim of raising awareness for climate change and environmental issues. It is organized by CentroScienza Onlus with the cooperation of Museo Regionale di Scienze Naturali, Torino.
