Default Re: Florida Cold Kills Result in Fisheries Changes

I think part of the problem in places like Florida bay and the everglades area is the extent of shallow water. I would guess that many resident fish in those areas would have no idea which way to head for deeper water.
Apparently the snook have been hit particularly hard in some places.
Sad but part of nature and hopefully they will rebound. Maybe more interesting is what effect the cold will have had on the prey species and invertebrates??
