Behavioral responses to annual temperature variation alter the dominant energy pathway, growth, and condition of a cold-water predator

Canadian scientists have discovered that certain lake predators are altering their behaviour due to climate change, revealing what the future may hold for these fish and their food.

A recently completed 11-year study at IISD Experimental Lakes Area  in northwestern Ontario, first published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America reveals that Lake Trout have a remarkable ability to adjust their behaviour in the face of changing water temperatures.
