Monitoring Ocean Acidification with Our Ferry Boats

Nearshore ecosystems are often overlooked in acidification studies, even though these habitats are crucial in planning for mariculture operation, fisheries monitoring, harmful algal blooms and paralytic shellfish poisoning. In this most extensive ferry-based ocean chemistry monitoring project in North America, UA is providing unparalleled, broad, and long-term coverage of nearshore marine habitats from Bellingham, WA to Skagway, AK.
