Helen Gurney-Smith | how will climate change affect key species?

Date: May 17, 2021

Time: 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm EST

Climate change is affecting marine life, including where species live and how they are responding to changes in their environment. Marine species are not only fascinating, but they also provide us with important sources of food and support coastal economies and communities. To find out how climate change may affect lobsters, Research Scientist Helen Gurney-Smith and her team in Fisheries and Oceans Canada conduct laboratory experiments using predicted climate conditions of warmer waters and lowered pH (ocean acidification). This talk will be about climate change in marine ecosystems, lobsters, how we conduct the experiments and what it means for lobster adults, embryos and juveniles.
