THUNDER BAY  The impact of climate change is already having impacts on Northern Canada. Winter road seasons are shorter. Wild weather has brought massive rainfalls and flooding to Kenora and Thunder Bay this summer.

.

There is a serious challenge being put on lakes, rivers and streams as a result of the changing climate.

.

Climate change is already affecting inland fish across North America including some fish that are popular with anglers. Scientists are seeing a variety of changes in how inland fish reproduce, grow and where they can live, according to four new studies published today in a special issue of Fisheries magazine.

.

Fish that have the most documented risk include those living in arid environments and coldwater species such as sockeye salmon, lake trout, walleye, and prey fish that larger species depend on for food.

.

Climate change can cause suboptimal habitat for some fish; warmer water, for example, can stress coldwater fish. When stressed, fish tend to eat less and grow less. For other fish, climate change is creating more suitable habitat; smallmouth bass populations, for example, are expanding.

.

These changes will have direct implications  some good, some bad  for recreational fishers, who, in the United States alone, contributed nearly $700 million in revenue to state agencies through license, tag, stamp, and permit purchases in 2015. Annually, anglers spend about $25 billion on trips, gear, and equipment related to recreational fishing in U.S. freshwaters.

Climate Change is Affecting North American Fish

.

The U.S. Geological Survey and partners are working to provide a fuller and more comprehensive picture of climate change impacts on North American fish for managers, scientists, and the public alike, said Abigail Lynch, a lead author and fisheries biologist with the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center.

.

The authors reviewed 31 studies across North America and Canada that document fish responses to climate change. The manuscripts describe the impacts of climate change to individual fish, populations, recreational fishers, and fisheries managers. One of the takeaway messages is that climate change effects on fish are rarely straightforward, and they affect warmwater and coldwater fish differently.

.

Thanks to this synthesis, we can see the effects of climate change on inland fish are no longer just future speculation, but todays facts, with real economic, social, and ecological impacts, said Doug Austen, Executive Director of the American Fisheries Society and publisher of Fisheries magazine. Now that trends are being revealed, we can start to tease apart the various stressors on inland fish and invest in conservation and research where these programs will really make a difference in both the short and long term.
