- With increasing environmental temperature due to global warming, poleward movement of marine species has been recorded.
- Environmental temperature affects physiological systems in fishes and physical properties of water that influence movement and feeding performance of fishes.
- Consequently, invasive species extend their negative impacts spreading diseases, competing with native species, and disturbing economies.
