Warming and acidification are expected impact of climate change that will affect marine areas in the future. These areas are, furthermore, vulnerable to strong anthropogenic stresses such as chemical pollutants. Nevertheless, the consequences of both stressors for marine ecosystems and organisms are still unidentified. The present study aims to examine, for the first time, the effect of temperature and CO2 pressure increase on bioaccumulation of phenanthrene as a PAHs model in four tissues…

Impact of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Accumulation on Oyster Health

The oyster is recognized as a model organism for the study of negative anthropogenic impacts on the environment, and the effects of various environmental stressors on the oyster model are compared, while synergistic effects of these stressors to PAH exposure are considered.



Effects of ocean acidification on trace element accumulation in the early-life stages of squid Loligo vulgaris

The anthropogenic release of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere leads to an increase in the CO2 partial pressure (pCO2) in the ocean, which may reach 950 !atm by the end of the 21st century.

Ocean acidification increases cadmium accumulation in marine bivalves: a potential threat to seafood safety

The results obtained suggested that all species tested accumulated significantly higher Cd in the CO2 acidified seawater during the 30 days experiment and the health risk of Cd via consumption of M. meretrix at pH 7.8 and 7.4 significantly increased 1.21 and 1.32 times respectively, suggesting a potential threat to seafood safety.

Effects of increased pCO2 and temperature on trace element (Ag, Cd and Zn) bioaccumulation in the eggs of the common cuttlefish, Sepia officinalis

The results suggest that pH and temperature affected both the permeability properties of the eggshell and embryonic metabolism, and the need to further evaluate the likely ecotoxicological impact of the global change on the early-life stages of the cuttlefish.

Habitat selection disruption and lateralization impairment of cryptic flatfish in a warm, acid, and contaminated ocean

Results indicate a differential effect of hypercapnia (decrease) on brain mercury accumulation, and present-day MeHg environmental concentrations may lead to severe disruption of behavioral and neurological functions, which, combined with ocean warming and acidification, might further jeopardize the ecological fitness of flatfish.
