Ocean acidification causes no detectable effect on swimming activity and body size in a common copepod
Description: Ocean acidification can impair an animal's physiological performance and energetically demanding activities such as swimming. Behavioural abnormalities and changed activity in response to ocean acidification are reported in fish and crustacean species. Here scientists studied swimming activity in the calanoid copepod Pseudocalanus acuspes in response to near-future ocean acidification. [Source: Hydrobiologia]
