Human activities have altered the concentrations of gases and other compounds in the atmosphere. Acid rain typically does not heavily affect aquaculture operations, and application of agricultural limestone can buffer water against the impacts of acid rain at facilities that use stream water. Due to higher carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere, the amount of carbon dioxide that will dissolve in ocean water has increased. Decreased pH can thin the shells of some molluscan shellfish and reduce survival.
