Seawater carbonate chemistry and growth and reproduction of three-spined Stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus)


We investigated the joint effect of warming and acidification on three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) from the juvenile stage to adulthood, focusing on parameters linked to growth, sexual maturation, and reproduction. Juvenile sticklebacks were split in 2 climate scenarios: a "Current" scenario corresponding to the current seasonal physico-chemical parameters of the water of the "Rade de Brest" in France, and a "RCP8.5" scenario with a warming of 3 °C and an acidification of 0.4 pH units.

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 2023-10-30.
