Ocean Conservation: Ocean Acidification and the Impacts of Fish Migration

Green Tech Challenge

Put simply, ocean acidification is the imbalance of chemical content in ocean water; whereby there is increased acidity, and upward temperature changes. The ocean has experienced a 26% pH drop in the last century. Ocean acidification has negative effects on sea-life and the ecosystem. We have written, here , that ocean acidification disrupts the growth and productive health of some sea life, the most vulnerable being shellfish larvae, and developing fish.

An area of seagrass and rock on the seabed, Mediterranean sea, France: “Blue carbon” ecosystems could prevent approximately 1 gigatonne of CO2e from entering the atmosphere by 2050, says the report. Ocean-based climate action can play a much bigger role in shrinking the world’s carbon footprint than was previously thought. This report signals an exciting new pathway to a low-carbon, climate-resilient future. Ocean Conference in June 2020.
