How are fish species affected by ocean acidification?



  1. 0 Votes

    Ocean acidification can have adverse effects on all marine wildlife, fish species included. In acidified waters, creatures that rely on calcium carbonate shells for survival struggle and are at risk. Many of these species are at the base of marine food chains, and changes in the populations of these creatures could disrupt the entire food webs of marine ecosystems, which grows to eventually include fish and other large creatures. 

    Also, while many fish species are insensitive to ocean acidification, the eggs they lay may not be able to develop properly in acidic waters.
