A recent paper ‘Tropicalization of fish fauna of Galician coastal waters, in the NW Iberian upwelling systempublished by Bañón et al. (2024) showed a tropicalization of fish fauna of Galician coastal waters caused by the arrival of 49 Non-Native Fishes species of tropical and subtropical origin as a consequence of the increase in sea temperature.
