Ocean Acidification

The sea is helping reasonable weather swap because of its huge means to shop CO2, in the course of the mixed activities of ocean physics, chemistry, and biology. This garage capability limits the volume of human-released CO2 ultimate within the surroundings. As CO2 reacts with seawater, it generates dramatic adjustments in carbonate chemistry, together with decreases in pH and carbonate ions and a rise in bicarbonate ions.

4 Dissolved oxygen Oxygen is the most important of all the dissolved gases for water quality because it is essential for respiration, oxidizing the nutrients that release the energy necessary for locomotion, reproduction, feeding and other vital activities (Cerezo Valverde and Garcı´a Garcı´a, 2005). Oxygen consumption can be affected by metabolism, ambient temperature and body weight. , 1988) and decreased oxygen solubility (Weiss, 1970). , 1983). Parra et al.

(2010, 2011a) found that lipids are important nutrients for cephalopods, mainly as a source of energy. Among them, PUFAs and particularly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) were identified as the main source of energy of fasting octopus, suggesting that they should be included when an artificial diet is designed. These findings were confirmed when agglutinated moist diets were used to feed O.
