We work strenuously to bring our readers a completely independent perspective of Vancouver news. Our software programmers, editors, journalists and affiliated wire services are all dedicated to producing the best journalism possible.
This in a world where conflicts of interest pervade business empires, and political dynasties, and where a shrinking number of media proprietors are growing their interests at the expensive of diversity of media ownership. The Vancouver Star is an independent online newspaper. Our focus primarily is to produce the latest breaking stories out of Vancouver.
We also cover the nation. Regional news too is a priority, as is our extensive world news coverage. For a Vancouver weather report, local news, breaking international headlines, or what's happening in sports, the Vancouver Star is for you.
Our Business Centre too is active 24 hours a day, bringing you the latest market updates from key global centres like Tokyo, Sydney, London, Paris, Berlin, and New York. Foreign exchange rates are a regular feature, and we provides a vast range of general interest news covering topics like business travel, seniors, womens interest, and lifestyle stories.
While much of the discussion about climate change focuses on the threat of future sea level rise, scientists at the University of British Columbia say warmer global temperatures have been affecting the world's oceans and fisheries for some 40 years.
They used known temperature preferences of fish and other marine species as a sort of "thermometer" to gauge the extent of the change, and they saw a gradual migration of fish species away from the equator into cooler, deeper waters.
The researchers analyzed data from global fisheries from 1970 to 2006 and found the catch was increasingly dominated by warm-water species. Lead author William Cheung notes that while boats off the northeastern coast of the U.S. were catching new species typically found closer to the tropics, "in the tropics, climate change meant fewer marine species and reduced catches, with serious implications for food security."
The study of the changes in fish distribution worldwide as a result of climate change is published in this month's Nature.
