Does ocean acidification cause habitat loss?

    The term “ocean acidification”, doesn’t actually mean that the ocean is acidic. It simply means that the pH is moving closer to the acidic end of the scale. Currently, the oceans are all know to be in the “Neutral” range, but are getting to the point that growth rate of coral reefs is slowing. Ocean acidification is also causing ocean temperatures to rise, which is resulting in a decrease of adult plankton. These Plankton help to feed many reef dwelling fish.
