The North Seas

Far-reaching consequences of climate change are felt worldwide, but the negative impacts of global warming are the most prominent in the Arctic belt. Due to its unique food web, this fragile area supports an exceptionally large number of fish and invertebrates, even though its temperature rises two to three times faster than in any other place on Earth, creating drastic and sudden changes for the entire ecosystem. The Northern Seas exhibit is inhabited by the Atlantic cod, the Atlantic wolffish, the lumpsucker, the shorthorn sculpin, the red comb star, the frilled anemone, and the soft coral.
