The scientists found that fish growth in some areas Morwong slowing due to rising sea temperatures to two degrees Celsius over the last 60 years.

The study, published in the journal Nature Climate Change reveals, in addition to fish Morwong, the effect of temperature change also affects other types of fish and coral reefs.

"fisheries sector will be a big loss," said Ron thresher from the research agency CSIRO.
