The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have released a study on the acidic waters off the West Coast that are causing the shells of marine snails to disintegrate.
These marine snails are part of the diet of the pink salmon, mackerels and herrings.
William Peterson, oceanographer for NOAA Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NFSC) explained : “We did not expect to see pteropods being affected to this extent in our coastal region for several decades. This study will help us as we compare these results with future observations to analyze how the chemical and physical processes of ocean acidification are affecting marine organisms.”
