BC OAH Action Plan

The BC OAH Action aims to determine the state of knowledge related to ocean acidification and hypoxia in BC’s coastal waters, with long-term goals for addressing knowledge gaps and developing adaptation and mitigation strategies to support the fisheries and aquaculture sectors, traditional harvesters, and other BC seafood interests.


Dungeness Crab Case Study Resources

Dungeness crab is a valuable species throughout the National Marine Sanctuaries of the West Coast from Washington state to throughout California. This communication toolkit is designed for educators and communicators to use to teach others about the impact of ocean acidification on Dungeness crab.

Crabs in a Changing Ocean

This infographic from NOAA and National Marine sanctuaries, outlines how crabs will be impacted by changing water chemistry and what you can do to help!


Tsleil-Waututh Nation’s Climate Action Initiatives

Tsleil-Waututh members have observed the effects of climate change in our territory for decades. OA is a concern to TWN, along with other ocean-related effects of climate change. Burrard Inlet is becoming more acidic, and research is underway to determine whether the cause is disproportionately associated with OA or if the reduction in pH is attributed to urban and industrial inputs.

Baynes Sound Data

This project aims to better understand the short- and long-term variability that occurs within these productive waters. With more data, it is hoped that producers will have the information needed to make the best decisions for their harvest. This online resource gives users access to real time ocean monitoring data in Baynes Sound.

B.C. is focused on implementing CleanBC; the actions and commitments in CleanBC will reduce the causes of ocean acidification and help to build adaptation and resiliency of coastal communities

Back to Blue Initiative: An Ocean Crisis in the Making

The Back to Blue Initiative has created an interactive webpage that educates the user on the basics of ocean acidification. These basics are broken down into an introduction, the science, the impacts, and soultions?
