Ocean acidification threatens Washington's marine species and ecosystems
Ocean water is becoming more acidic because of carbon pollution from human activities. This process, known as ocean acidification, may be having negative impacts on marine animals, particularly shellfish. Scientists predict that ocean acidification will continue in the future, which could cause big problems for many important species in Washington, including humans.
