Aquatics StoryMap Card


Climate change is threatening our region's aquatic ecosystems. A warming climate is causing more floods and droughts, while overtaxed water management infrastructure leaks nutrient pollution into lakes and streams. Warming temperatures and excessive nutrients means less suitable habitat for fish. How then can we address these overlapping problems? Bringing together a wide range of NE CASC research on climate adaptation in aquatic ecosystems, our new StoryMap explores myriad management options for preserving fish populations and northeastern lakes and streams.
