ClimateWire's Morello examines impact of rising ocean acidity on crab development

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, ocean acidity is expected to dramatically rise by the end of the century. This drop in pH could cause major problems for certain species of fish, and hurt the commercial fishing industry. In this ClimateWire Special Report, Lauren Morello reports on research being conducted at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Fisheries Science Center in Kodiak, Alaska. Morello talks to Bob Foy, director of the Center, about the impact of ocean acidification on crab growth.
