Our warming sea

BBC radio 4’s excellent ‘Costing the Earth’ ran a 30-minute programme based on the impact that rising sea temperatures will have and what species we are likely to both gain and lose around our coast.

Already we are witnessing a change of plankton to that normally found in the southern seas, hence the species that feed upon this. Sunfish, sea turtles and basking sharks are appearing whilst cod and haddock are moving north. Exotic whales and dolphins may be coming to us and it is even on the cards that great white sharks may soon visiting our beaches.

If you missed the programme you can still hear it by going to www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/b01m0phx
