Golden tilefish is a large, bottom-dwelling marine fish that is particularly susceptible to climate change because it can tolerate only a very narrow range of temperatures. In 1882, millions of golden tilefish died in a sudden mortality event caused by an unusually strong influx of arctic water into the Mid-Atlantic. Since then, scientists have been fascinated with the relationship between ocean conditions and tilefish dynamics. In this seminar, Dr. Genny Nesslage will describe past and present research on the linkage between climate and trends in the golden tilefish fishery.
