Sea temperature increases from climate change are already affecting the Great Barrier Reef and have significant effects across the whole ecosystem. Coral bleaching is predicted to become more frequent and severe. Nearly everything in a coral-reef ecosystem depends on corals, such as the fish and invertebrates that rely on live coral for food, shelter, or recruitment habitat.
