Using data collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Malin Pinsky of Rutgers University has shown that marine species in the northeast Atlantic Ocean have moved generally north and east in the last few decades. This is thought to be precipitated by warmer waters due to climate change. Distribution is indicated from low (blue) to high (red).
