The 2012 North Atlantic heat wave was concentrated in the Gulf of Maine; however, shorter periods with very warm temperatures extended from Cape Hatteras to Iceland during the summer of 2012. American lobster and longfin squid and their associated fisheries were impacted by the event.1dfd2171-2be3-40b2-a8e2-c0df84ec462a The North Pacific event began in 2014e2d6b1b6-6e11-4e40-a7bc-d777f2bbba0f and extended into shore in 2015257c4627-9b78-41ce-a824-ebfe008a4c88,5300d778-0b4e-44bb-9449-c6a36ead3636 and into the Gulf of Alaska in 2016,ff0d186e-cad8-4def-ae0e-9d025d4e81b2,1d63deea-30f3-4fa1-ba08-3a969b23aa16 leading to a large bloom of toxic algae that impacted the Dungeness crab fishery and contributed directly and indirectly to deaths of sea lions and humpback whales.
