Exploring Fish Response to Rising Ocean Temperatures

Warming ocean waters have been observed globally. How do warming waters affect marine fish, corals, and critical fish habitat? This Giving Tuesday (December 3) consider donating to help SECOORA and the FACT Network answer this question.

 

SECOORA and the FACT Network are partnering to sponsor a graduate student to examine how temperature affects fish movement patterns in south Florida marine ecosystems. Our goal is to raise $15,000 and we are 36% of the way there. Help us reach our goal and give the gift of a student scholarship.

SECOORA

The Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) works with stakeholders within the four southeastern states – North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida – to monitor our coasts and ocean. SECOORA provides coastal and oceanographic data and products to communities, state and Federal agencies, and industries within the region.
