Carry-over effects of ocean acidification in a cold?water lecithotrophic holothuroid

Ocean acidification (OA) due to anthropogenic CO2 emissions is predicted to affect the world’s oceans in the near future. To date, knowledge remains limited on the response of species that are weakly calcified, produce lecithotrophic (non-feeding) larvae and live in polar/subpolar environments. The cold-water sea cucumber Cucumaria frondosa represents an ideal model for such investigations.
