CABI Book Chapter

Climate change and infectious fish diseases.

Book cover for Climate change and infectious fish diseases.


This book contains topics on the role of climatic factors on the epidemiology, prevalence, distribution, prevention and control of fish diseases. The 25 chapters that are divided into three main parts that discuss freshwater ecosystems and biological sequestrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide; microbial diseases (viral, bacterial and fungal infections) and parasitic diseases (protozoan and metaz...


Chapter 1 (Page no: 1)

Freshwater ecosystems in North America with reference to the Great Lakes Basin.

This chapter focuses on biotic and abiotic changes (e.g. increases in water temperature, acidification of the aquatic environment, ice covers) in the Great Lakes Basin. The evidence presented in this chapter suggests that the Great Lakes will undergo many of the same type of changes in physical and hydrological processes as many other lakes in North America. Similarly, the rivers that act as tributaries, and the coastal and protected wetlands, will be faced with the same type of challenges as further inland. As such, the biota within the Great Lakes Basin will need to deal with the same challenges in the form of changing thermal regimes, mismatched seasonal processes (e.g. the hatching of fish eggs versus the emergence of their invertebrate prey), the appearance of new species, and alterations in the quantity and quality of habitat. It is therefore important for scientists and managers to provide plausible scenarios now under climate change predictions, such that appropriate mitigation and adaptation plans can be implemented where possible.
