Bernard Erasmus will present:

Fish on acid: ocean acidification impairs fish growth and skeletal development

Although it is increasingly accepted that ocean acidification poses a considerable threat to marine organisms, little is known about the response of fishes to this phenomenon. While initial research concluded that adult fish will tolerate CO2 changes predicted in the next 300 years, here we show that the larval stages of fish are adversely affected.

This is ground breaking research and will be very interesting to anyone concerned about our oceans.
