Warming oceans may cause sharks to be born smaller

Date: 13 March 2021 Tags: Climate Change
  • The warming of worldwide oceans from climate change means baby sharks are at risk of being born smaller and without the energy they need to survive, a study has found.
  • The scientists studied epaulette sharks, which live off Australia and New Guinea. They found that warmer conditions sped up the sharks' growing process, and that meant they hatched from eggs earlier and were born exhausted.
  • They found that the sharks reared in the warmest temperatures weighed significantly less than those raised in average temperatures, and they exhibited reduced metabolic performance.
