50% of Mediterranean fish endangered

Unless CO2 emissions are reduced by the end of the century, half of the marine ecosystem will risk being destroyed.

The Mediterranean is at risk of losing 50% of its fish. This has been stated by the WWF and the Universities of East Anglia and James Cook.

The studies have examined the situation as it appears in the Mediterranean and the climate change which is effecting 80 million species in 35 different zones around the world.

The study has produced some alarming results. An increase of 2 degrees Celsius, the maximum permitted by the Paris Agreement on Climate, will put at risk 30% of the species examined in the study.

If the global temperature continues to rise, half of our marine ecosystem will disappear.

Species most at risk are turtles, dolphins, whales and porpoises.
