Physico-chemical and commercial shellfish species data to illustrate potential vulnerability to ocean acidification
Birchenough, SNR., Soetaert, K. and Herman, PMJ (2021). Physico-chemical and commercial shellfish species data to illustrate potential vulnerability to ocean acidification. Integrated data products created under the European Marine Observation Data Network (EMODnet) Biology project (EASME/EMFF/2017/, funded by the by the European Union under Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.

Ocean acidification (OA) has become one of the most studied topics in the last 15 years. The majority of the research published to date seems to suggest that some of the effects of ocean acidification could have dramatic consequences for ecosystems. The emerging evidence suggests that ocean acidification will act differently across species and there may be direct and indirect effects for ecosystems. The information gathered in this ‘proof of concept’ is to showcase what datasets are available and what is possible to distil from the combination of information. The time-series provided for pH helps to describe what are the current environmental conditions and variability of an area.
