Artículo en Español
De las 38 especies de peces encontradas, nada menos que 10 son nuevas no solo para Groenlandia sino también para la ciencia. Las 38 especies fueron descubiertas desde el último estudio realizado en 1992.

El aumento de la temperatura de los océanos debido al calentamiento global y el aumento de la pesca en alta mar pueden ser responsables del aumento de nuevas especies de peces en aguas de Groenlandia, de acuerdo con el estudio publicado en febrero en la revista
Zootaxa.

Ten of the species new to Greenland are new to science too. All 38 were discovered since the last such survey in 1992.

Rising ocean temperatures due to global warming—which could be drawing unfamiliar fishes to the region—and increased deep-sea fishing may be responsible for the spike in fresh fish faces seen off Greenland, according to the study, published in February in the journal Zootaxa.
