Ocean acidification impacts on food webs and fisheries
January 12, 2017 —
Ocean acidification will reverberate through the West Coast's marine food web, but not necessarily in the ways you might expect, new research shows. Dungeness crabs, for example, will likely suffer as their food sources decline. Dungeness crab fisheries valued at about $220 million annually may face a strong downturn over the next 50 years, according to the research published today in the journal Global Change Biology.
