Ocean Acidification
FILE - In this Dec. 8, 2011 file photo, Dammon Saunders, a deckhand with Taylor Shellfish Farms, reaches for a container as he transplants Totten Virginica oysters, on the waters of Oyster Bay in the Totten Inlet near Shelton, Wash. An expert panel said Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, that rising acidity levels in the oceans pose a serious threat to shellfish and other marine life, and tackling that problem in Washington state will require reducing carbon dioxide emissions, keeping polluted runoff out of marine waters, and increasing monitoring at hatcheries.
