Andrew Collins-Anderson interviews Dr. Melissa Ward, PhD post-doctoral researcher working out of San Diego State University, and Ryan Hasert, public policy analysis graduate student at Oregon State University. They are part of the research project “Assessing Community Vulnerability to Ocean Acidification Across the California Current Ecosystem”.

The project looks at Ocean Acidification on the West Coast and specifically the impacts and adaptive capacity strategies employed by shellfish farmers and other shellfish fisheries. We learn about Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia, the impacts to coastal communities and ecosystems and important policy opportunities.
