Interactive effects of salinity and elevated CO2 levels on juvenile eastern oysters, Crassostrea virginica.
Dickinson, G.H.

When juvenile oysters were exposed to ocean acidification and/or low salinity, they had greater mortality, less energy stored in their tissues, and loss of soft tissue indicating energy deficiency. Ocean acidification and low salinity also reduced the hardness and fracture resistance of their shells. (Laboratory study)
