Ocean acidification is an issue that has been gathering interest over the past decade. This interest resulted in the formation of the Canadian Ocean Acidification Community of Practice.

The Community of Practice is an interdisciplinary group dedicated to sharing information and resources related to ocean acidification. Our diverse membership consists of individuals from government, aquaculture, fisheries, academia, and Indigenous community leadership, as well as students and members of the public.

Our goals are to connect and coordinate across all sectors, disciplines, and regions to share expertise, data, and resources, identify pressing needs for ocean acidification research and knowledge and create a collaborative and supportive environment for groups affected by ocean acidification. We strive to achieve these goals by providing a space for discussion and co-production of ocean acidification knowledge across Canada.
