A species of copepod (Tisbe battagliai) had decreased reproduction and growth when exposed to ocean acidification conditions. Over time, these changes could result in smaller brood sizes, smaller females, and perhaps later maturing females, which could destabilize the food web. (Laboratory study)
Ocean acidification induces multi-generational decline in copepod naupliar production with possible conflict for reproductive resource allocation.
