Seawater carbonate chemistry and growth, physiology and behavior of European abalone Haliotis tuberculata

DOI

This study examined the physiological responses of the larval stages of Haliotis tuberculata, an economically important abalone, to combined temperature (17 °C and 19 °C) and pH (ambient pH and −0.3 units, i.e., +200% increase in seawater acidity) in a full factorial experiment. Tissue organogenesis, shell formation, and shell length significantly declined due to low pH. High temperature significantly increased the proportion of fully shelled larvae at 24 h post-fertilization (hpf), but increased the proportion of unshelled larvae at 72 hpf. Percentage of swimming larvae at 24 hpf, 72 hpf and 96 hpf significantly declined due to high temperature, but not because of low pH. Larval settlement increased under high temperature, but was not affected by low pH. Despite the fact that no interaction between temperature and pH was observed, the results provide additional evidence on the sensitivity of abalone larvae to both low pH and high temperature. This may have negative consequences for the persistence of abalone populations in natural and aquaculture environments in the near future.

In order to allow full comparability with other ocean acidification data sets, the R package seacarb (Gattuso et al, 2021) was used to compute a complete and consistent set of carbonate system variables, as described by Nisumaa et al. (2010). In this dataset the original values were archived in addition with the recalculated parameters (see related PI). The date of carbonate chemistry calculation by seacarb is 2022-04-19.
