  1. Helping the State visualize what’s at stake as oceans acidify   Now Available: http://www.oceansciencetrust.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/OST-OA-Impacts-Infographic-Final.pdf A summary of the latest research on ocean acidification (OA) impacts to important species and ecosystems in California, from crab to squid, rockfish to urchins. This tool provides a tangible illustration of our current knowledge to
  2. Pacific geoduck aquaculture is a growing industry, however little is known about how geoduck respond to varying environmental conditions, or how production might be impacted by low pH associated with ocean acidification. Ocean acidification research is increasingly incorporating multiple environmental drivers and natural pH variability into biological response studies for

  4. Ocean acidification can reduce the growth and survival of marine species during their larval stages. However, if populations have the genetic capacity to adapt and increase their tolerance of low pH and high pCO2 levels, this may offset the harmful effects of ocean acidification. By combining controlled breeding experiments with

Workers seeding oyster beds at Smith Cove.   The Port of Seattle, along with Puget Sound Restoration Fund and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, are working on an innovative ‘Blue Carbon’ pilot program to establish habitat and a native oyster bed at the north end of Smith Cove
