Seawater carbonate chemistry and physiology of competing temperate and coral reef fishes


We used a controlled laboratory experiment to test the concurrent effects of projected future summer and winter ocean temperatures, ocean acidification, and novel species interaction on the physiology of range-extending tropical and co-shoaling native temperate fish species across a 38-day exposure period. Physiological proxies including total antioxidant capacity, malondialdehyde, fulton's condition index, hepatosomatic index, stomach fullness and total lipid content were measured.

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 2023-11-28.
