Ocean acidification a big problem — but not for coral reef fish behaviour

Previous studies have reported that ocean acidification changes coral reef fish behaviour, so that they are attracted by the smell of predatory fish and lose the ability to find their way home. Now a new study, published in Nature, shows that ocean acidification does not affect the behaviour of coral reef fish at all. In addition, the researchers show that the older results are so extreme that they are in principle statistically impossible to obtain. The researchers emphasize that it is clear that ocean acidification has many other very negative effects.
