New report details how climate change is harming freshwater fish

A new report was issued by the National Wildlife Federation today stating that due to climate change, coldwater fish habitat could decline up to 50 percent within the lifetime of a child born today.

TU's own Jack Williams talks to Miles Grant from EcoWatch:

“Temperature increases of even a few degrees can have dramatic impacts, harming iconic game fish like salmon, trout and walleye and giving a leg up to destructive invaders like sea lamprey,” said Jack Williams, Trout Unlimited senior scientist and one of the lead authors of the report. “We need to manage our water resources in a way that ensures that both people and fish have the clean, cool, and abundant water they need to survive.”
