New model reveals how ocean acidification challenges tiny sea snails off U.S. West Coast

NOAA Research

A tiny sea snail, sometimes called a sea butterfly because of how it flutters about traveling the ocean currents, is part of the diet for such valuable fish as salmon and cod off the U.S West Coast.

A new study models the journey of this delicate plankton from offshore to nearshore waters, describing how changing ocean chemistry along this journey affects their condition.

or those who make their living farming oysters in the states of Washington and Oregon, the widespread mortality of larvae at several hatcheries between 2005 and 2009 was alarming and potentially devastating. After intense scientific scrutiny and collaboration among industry, government, and academic scientists, the culprit was eventually identified: corrosive seawater.
