Critical Issues webinar: “Ocean acidification impacts on fisheries”

The increasing acidity of the ocean has many ecological and economic impacts that are intensified in colder bodies of water, such as those off the coast of New England, a region with a large fisheries sector. This webinar will address how geoscience helps us to understand ocean acidification, ocean acidification’s impacts on marine life, and what states and municipalities can do to reduce the fishery-related economic impacts of ocean acidification.
