Future ocean acidification impacts on Mediterranean seafoods: first investigation of the economic costs

There is increasing concern with regard to future impacts of ocean acidification on marine biological resources, fisheries and aquaculture and the potential economic and social consequences. Here we give a summary report on the status of following sets of data required to evaluate the likely scales of future economic losses to Mediterranean fisheries and aquaculture; a) direct and indirect effects of reduced pH on Mediterranean species of socio-economic significance, b) effects of different global atmospheric carbon emission rates on future acidity of Mediterranean seawater, and c) the economic values of shellfish from both wild fisheries and aquaculture industries. The areas of uncertainty that warrant further investigation are also identified.
