Based on the assumptions of many researchers, global warming and anthropogenic factors such as pollution, transporting and trading, as well as invasionism, lessepsianism, endangerism effect negatively and will continue to effect aquatic populations and their existence in the ecosystem and related habitats. Thus, it may be stated that climate warming and anthropogenic factors will certainly cause extinction of some aquatic organisms as well as fish species in the end, by 2080 or 2100. Considering economic impacts of losing some species, the new areas of fishing should be decided to sustain current needs of human and food industry. In this paper, the effects of global warming, natural and anthropogenic factors affecting aquatic life were discussed by using the data from various reports.
