Reduced early life growth and survival in a fish in direct response to increase carbon dioxide
Baumann, H

When embryos of a common estuarine fish—the inland silverside—were exposed to high CO2 levels until one week after hatching, survival dropped by 74 percent and length by 18 percent. The eggs were more vulnerable to mortality than the post-hatch larvae. The CO2 conditions that were simulated in the study are expected to occur later in this century. (Laboratory study)
