The marine species that will be harmed by ocean acidification most directly are mainly invertebrates with shells or hard body parts that can be corroded by acidic waters. These include corals, mollusks, crustaceans, and others. However, because these invertebrates are important to many ocean food chains – and some, like corals, provide essential habitat for thousands of species – declines in the health of their populations will affect the rest of the ocean as well. Major fisheries could experience serious negative affects. All or most fish species will be affected if acidification continues, largely because of disruptions to their natural food chains.
