The Mediterranean Sea saw exceptionally high temperatures this summer, and the increasingly warming waters have big impacts on the sea’s most important farmed fish species -- bass and bream.

While the salmon farming industry is mulling technology shifts such as offshore and subsea farms in preparation for warming waters, the bass and bream sector is making a more subtle, and more immediate, shift.

Bass and bream are often lumped together, but they are in fact separate species, with distinct markets, price points and distinct biological characteristics.
