Description

Read this Alaska Seas & Coasts to find out how ocean acidification is impacting Alaska’s seas, to explore ocean acidification topics that Alaska researchers focus on and why, and to look at fisheries policy issues in light of current uncertainty. Commercially important shellfish are a top research priority because of their economic value and because they are likely to suffer direct effects of reduced calcium carbonate availability. The need for biological research to catch up with the understanding of ocean physical changes, and the flexibility of marine policy to reflect those changes, is critical to the future of Alaska fisheries.
