Australia’s plankton moving south due to climate change

6491186-3x2-340x227[1]

Australia’s plankton population, a vital key in the human food chain, has moved 300 kilometres south in 30 years: CSIRO Plankton Report 2015.

Plankton produces about half the oxygen humans breathe.  And determines numbers of fish, marine mammals and turtles in a region.  Scientists attribute the move of plankton to climate change.
