About the disappearance of moules mariniere due to climate change and ocean acidity:
Currently around 20 per cent of mussels fall and are lost on the sea floor due to weak attachments, but Prof Carrington said once coastal waters dropped below 7.6 pH, the proportion was projected to double to 40 per cent.
“At 40 per cent mortality it’s probably no longer a viable business,” she said.
“Farmers would have to send divers down to set up nets to catch everything that fell off, and even then the crabs would be able to get in at low tide.
“They might even have to move the muscles into different waters to survive, which would make it too difficult.”
Perhaps too much reliance on the mechanical spell checker and not enough on the human?
