A new model created by scientists at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution projects – under a worst- case scenario – that warming and increasingly acidic waters could reduce the sea scallop population by more than 50% in the next 30 to 80 years. The bright spot? Fisheries management and efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, might slow
Ocean acidification threatens food security, economies, and culture because of its potential impacts on marine ecosystem services. Connecting to the human impacts is essential for preparing for the consequences of our changing ocean.
