Environmental Physiology of the Salton Sea
Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences
The salinity of water greatly affects fish. Their bodily systems, and even their very cells differ between saltwater and freshwater fish. Not only do the salinity levels differ in the ocean, but enzymes, temperatures, density, all determine the fish species in an area. Dr. Brian Sardella explains how the Salton Sea’s salinity and pollution in particular must be stabilized. He reveals how because the fish and other wildlife are dying, the Salton Sea has a limited amount of time.
