The ocean is a vibrant ecosystem teeming with life. Sadly, it’s sending out distress signals. A recent study suggests that climate change is wreaking far more havoc on marine life than we ever imagined. Scientists are sounding the alarm that fish and invertebrates (like snails and sea urchins) are caught in the crosshairs, and the […] The post Climate change is impacting marine life more than we realized appeared first on Ocean Acidification ..read more

Imagine you are a clown fish. A juvenile clown fish, specifically, in the year 2100. You live near a coral reef. You are orange and white, which doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you have these little ear stones called otoliths in your inner ear, and when sound waves pass through the water and […] The post Climate change is rewiring fish brains — and probably ours, too appeared first on Ocean Acidification ..read more

The ocean faces significant risks from upstream and land-based actions; addressing the interlinked impacts is hindered by fragmented governance and isolated actions. Source-to-sea management bridges gaps in governance of various environments by fostering collaboration among stakeholders from land to the ocean. By working together, we can effectively manage ecosystems’ health and enhance societal resilience. SIWI […] The post Join us for source-to-sea synergies at the Ocean Decade Conference appeared first on Ocean Acidification ..read more

The role of action plans in tackling a mounting ocean crisis INTRODUCTION The world is waking up to the threat that ocean acidification (OA)—a rise in the acidity of seawater caused by excess carbon dioxide entering it from the atmosphere—poses to marine ecosystems and to the coastal economies that depend on them. Since OA’s damaging […] The post Ocean acidification: time for action appeared first on Ocean Acidification ..read more
