Acute toxicity of lowered pH to some oceanic zooplankton
Yamada, Y.

Ten species of zooplankton displayed a range of mortality rates when exposed to ocean acidification conditions. Differences in in swimming behavior, food habits, size, and presence of gills were not significantly related to sensitivity to lowered pH. The results suggest that marine zooplankton are more sensitive than freshwater zooplankton to acidic pH. (Laboratory study)
