Fish that once massed in North Carolina have gradually shifted north to New Jersey–one signal of the changing ocean that is upending traditional fishing patterns. Funded through a $1.4 million National Science Foundation grant, the Pinsky lab is working with Kevin St. Martin (Geography) and Bonnie McCay (Human Ecology) and other partners at Yale and Princeton to examine how shifting patterns of where fish congregate is affecting commercial anglers and how they are changing their practices. They are also studying what kind of regulations may be needed to adapt to these changing realities.
