The seas around the UK and Ireland are warming, which is a concern for scientists. This warming puts marine life at risk and can cause fish mortality. It is mainly due to climate change, but other factors also contribute. The coastlines of the British Isles are experiencing rising seawater temperatures, as confirmed by data from the European Space Agency. This can lead to stronger storms and extreme weather. The warming is caused by natural climate changes and human activities like reduced winds, less Sahara Desert dust, and lower pollution from ships. These changes also impact storm formation in the eastern tropical Atlantic, which affects North Atlantic hurricanes.

The UK’s weather service predicts more tropical storms and cyclones due to higher surface temperatures, as well as a higher chance of a hot summer. Monitoring and understanding the effects of these temperature changes on marine life, weather patterns, and the overall climate is crucial as global temperatures continue to rise.
