Ocean acidification- a purpose-built experimental facility (video)

Graeme Moss from NIWA’s Mahanga Bay aquaculture facility explaining about a purpose-built experimental facility for testing Ocean Acidification. Increased CO2 means a lowering of the Ocean’s pH. Animals at a lower pH actually loss shell weight, which meant the shells are dissolving under the more acidic conditions, or they aren’t generating new shell as quickly as they would have under normal conditions.
