Ocean Acidification
FILE - In this June 21, 2010 file photo, Efrain Rivera uses a pitchfork to harvest Pacific oysters at low tide at a Farm owned by Taylor Shellfish Co. in Oyster Bay, near Olympia, 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.
