Scientists, economists, and stakeholders from all eight Arctic countries forge a path forward in adapting to ocean acidification in the Arctic
Arctic waters are rapidly changing. In the coming decades, these high-latitude waters will undergo significant shifts that could affect fish, shellfish, marine mammals, along with the livelihoods and well-being of communities dependent on these resources.
A small but growing number of entrepreneurs are creating sea-farming operations that cultivate shellfish together with kelp and seaweed, a combination they contend can restore ecosystems and mitigate the impacts of ocean acidification.
The Coral Reef Alliance and one of its loyal funders are pleased to announce a call for proposals for the Coral Adaptation Challenge.
At the recent International Coral Reef Symposium in Honolulu, Hawai‘i many speakers raised concerns about whether the rates of evolution by natural selection will be fast enough to keep up with the rate of current and future environmental change. The answer to the question of whether corals can adapt quickly enough is critically important for evaluating the merit of alternative conservation strategies.The Coral Reef Alliance is seeking expert involvement in a project that is designed to synthesize this rapidly advancing area of research.
A team of scientists is investigating whether growing kelp can reduce carbon-dioxide levels in the inland marine waters of Puget Sound. They also want to find ways to market that harvested kelp for food, fuels or fertilizers.
