The partial pressure of CO 2 in the oceans has increased rapidly over the past century, driving ocean acidification and raising concern for the stability of marine ecosystems 1 – 3 . Coral reef fishes are predicted to be especially susceptible to end-of-century ocean acidification on the basis of several high-profile papers 4 , 5 that have reported profound behavioural and sensory impairments—for example, complete attraction to the chemical cues of predators under conditions of ocean… Expand
Methods matter in repeating ocean acidification studies.
TLDR
It is suggested that previous studies on the effects of elevated levels of CO2 on the behaviour of coral reef fishes are not repeatable and that ocean acidification does not impair the behaviour in fish, even though six significant behavioural effects were detected in their study. Expand
Ocean acidification does not affect fish ectoparasite survival
TLDR
It is advocated that the need for cleaning interactions will persist in potentially acidified coral reefs because exposure to an acidification scenario predicted by IPCC to the end of the century (RCP 8.5 – 980 μatm pCO2) affects gnathiid survival. Expand
Ocean warming and acidification may drag down the commercial Arctic cod fishery by 2100
TLDR
It is found that near-term climate change will benefit the fishery, but under likely future warming and acidification this large fishery is at risk of collapse by the end of the century, even with the best adaptation effort in terms of reduced fishing pressure. Expand
Diel CO2 fluctuations alter the molecular response of coral reef fishes to ocean acidification conditions
TLDR
It is suggested that environmental CO2 fluctuations might enable reef fishes to phase shift their clocks and anticipate CO2 changes, thereby avoiding impairments and more successfully adjust to ocean acidification conditions. Expand
Behavioural responses to predators in Mediterranean mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) are unaffected by elevated pCO2.
TLDR
The results add to the increasing body of evidence suggesting that the effects of end-of-century pCO2 levels on marine animal behaviour are likely weak, and longer-term exposures spanning multiple generations are needed to better understand how ocean acidification might impact behavioural responses to predation in marine bivalves.

Ocean Acidification Mitigates the Negative Effects of Increased Sea Temperatures on the Biomineralization and Crystalline Ultrastructure of Mytilus
Negative impacts of global climate change are predicted for a range of taxa. Projections predict marked increases in sea surface temperatures and ocean acidification (OA), arguably placing calcifyingExpand
The Neurobiology of Ocean Change - insights from decapod crustaceans.
TLDR
While data indicate a surprising robustness against stressors like temperature and pH, it is found that only a handful of species have been studied and long-term effects on neuronal activity remain mostly unknown, and the combined effects of multiple stressors are understudied. Expand
Acidification and hypoxia interactively affect metabolism in embryos, but not larvae, of the coastal forage fish Menidia menidia
TLDR
It is concluded that early life metabolism is largely resilient to elevated PCO2 in this species, but that acidification likely influences energetic responses and thus vulnerability to hypoxia. Expand
Novel and disappearing climates in the global surface ocean from 1800 to 2100
Marine ecosystems are experiencing unprecedented warming and acidification caused by anthropogenic carbon dioxide. For the global sea surface, we quantified the degree that present climates areExpand
The Impacts of Ocean Acidification on Marine Food Quality and Its Potential Food Chain Consequences
Dissolution of anthropogenic CO2 into the oceans results in ocean acidification (OA), altering marine chemistry with consequences for primary, secondary, and tertiary food web producers. Here weExpand

Replenishment of fish populations is threatened by ocean acidification
TLDR
Levels of dissolved CO2 predicted to occur in the ocean this century alter the behavior of larval fish and dramatically decrease their survival during recruitment to adult populations and have far-reaching consequences for the sustainability of fish populations. Expand

Ocean acidification leads to changes in marine carbonate chemistry that are predicted to cause a decline in future coral reef calcification. Several laboratory and mesocosm experiments have describedExpand

Effects of ocean acidification on visual risk assessment in coral reef fishes
TLDR
The results are the first to suggest that response to visual cues of risk may be impaired by CO2 and provide strong evidence that the multi-sensory effects of CO2 may stem from systematic effects at the neural level. Expand
Paradigm Lost: Ocean Acidification Will Overturn the Concept of Larval-Fish Biophysical Dispersal
TLDR
Modelling incorporating larval behaviour derived from empirical studies indicates that relative to active larvae, passive larvae will have less self-recruitment, higher median and mean dispersal distances, and lower settlement rates, which is predicted to result in lower recruitment and less bet hedging for demersal, perciform fishes. Expand
Long-term acclimation to near-future ocean acidification has negligible effects on energetic attributes in a juvenile coral reef fish
TLDR
The findings contrast with several short-term studies by suggesting that end-of-century levels of CO2 may have negligible direct effects on the energetics of at least some species of fish. Expand
Response to ocean acidification in larvae of a large tropical marine fish, Rachycentron canadum.
TLDR
The robust nature of cobia may be due to the naturally variable environmental conditions this species currently encounters throughout ontogeny in coastal environments, which may lead to an increased acclimatization ability even during long-term exposure to stressors. Expand
The Geological Record of Ocean Acidification
TLDR
The geological record contains long-term evidence for a variety of global environmental perturbations, including ocean acidification plus their associated biotic responses, over the past ~300 million years of Earth’s history. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that behavioural abnormalities that stem from CO2 exposure are not restricted to sensitive tropical species or early life stages and may therefore affect fish on a global scale. Expand
