WORKSHOP “Science and Industry: how are they addressing the impacts of Ocean Acidification on Aquaculture and Fisheries?”

 

The ecosystem services and their benefits that humans derive from the ocean are threatened by diverse and numerous climate change drivers, one of them being ocean acidification. Ocean acidification has been shown to have negative effects on aquaculture and fisheries, with examples in oyster farming in Oregon, dungeness crab in California current, scallops in Perú, mussels in Chile and the fish Dover sole on the West Coast of the US. To address these problems, science must be aligned with the actors of the aquaculture and fisheries industries, first explaining to interest groups what the issues are, then developing research on the carbonate system and its impacts, and finally providing tools and techniques to mitigate these impacts on species of commercial interest, primarily shellfish and fish. The goal of this workshop is to exchange knowledge and experiences between representatives of the academy as well as aquaculture and fisheries industry, with the ultimate goal to determine the state-of-the-art in countries where both activities are relevant to their economy and ecosystems.

CONFERENCE "Chemistry of the carbonate system in the oceans"

 

Anthropogenic CO2 emissions have raised CO2 levels in the atmosphere, causing an increase in dissolved CO2 in the ocean. Dissolved CO2, carbonic acid, bicarbonate and carbonate ions, all together, constitute the carbonate system, which is the most important pH regulator in ocean water. This means that an increase in dissolved carbon dioxide in the ocean causes a decrease in pH, also referred to ocean acidification. In this context, the carbonate system plays a very important role, especially in the structure of the shells and skeletons of species such as bivalves, crustaceans, etc., which are cultivated in coastal areas and which could be affected by corrosive seawater. The objective of the conference is to transmit in a very simple language everything related to the chemistry of the carbonate system and the role it plays in calcifying specie and ecosystems.

 

El aumento de las emisiones antropogénicas de CO2 ha elevado los niveles de CO2 en la atmósfera, causando un aumento del CO2 disuelto en los océanos. El CO2 disuelto, ácido carbónico, iones bicarbonato y carbonato, todos juntos, constituyen el sistema de carbonatos, que es el más importante regulador de pH en el agua de los océanos. Esto significa que un aumento en el dióxido de carbono disuelto en el océano produce una disminución en el pH o acidificación de los océanos. En este contexto, el sistema de carbonatos en el océano juega un rol muy importante, especialmente en la estructura de las valvas, caparazones, carcazas, etc de especies calcificadoras de moluscos, crustáceos, etc, las cuales son cultivadas en las zonas costeras y que podrían ser afectadas por las aguas corrosivas de su entorno. El objetivo de la Conferencia es trasmitir en un lenguaje muy sencillo todo lo relacionado con la química del sistema de carbonatos y el rol que cumplen en los ecosistemas y especies calcificadoras.
