A compilation of data evaluated by European and
US researchers has revealed that as climate change raises ocean temperatures,
it has also increased the spread of harmful bacteria. The paper, which was
authored by scientists in 17 European marine research institutes who evaluated
over 100 studies, found in particular that the Vibrio bacteria has been
proliferating in marine environments.
This is one of the most dangerous known pathogens,
with a 50 percent fatality rate for those infected. The researchers thus
cautioned against consuming seafood and other potential exposure to the
bacteria, stating, “Millions of euros in health costs may result from human
consumption of contaminated seafood, ingestion of waterborne pathogens, and, to
a lesser degree, through direct occupational or recreational exposure to marine
