Seawater carbonate chemistry and otolith morphology in larvae of a tropical, epipelagic fish species, yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares)

DOI

To investigate the potential effects of increasing CO2 on otolith calcification of 9-day old pre-flexion stage yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares), an experiment was conducted at the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission's Achotines Laboratory in Panama during 2011. Fertilized eggs and larvae were exposed to mean pCO2 levels that ranged from present day (355 μatm) to two levels predicted to occur in some areas of the Pacific in the near future (2013 and 3321 μatm), and to an extreme value equivalent to long-term projections for 300 years in the future (9624 μatm).

In order to allow full comparability with other ocean acidification data sets, the R package seacarb (Gattuso et al, 2022) 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 2023-12-18.
