The seaweed prevents acidification of ocean water

In addition to determining the shelter for aquatic organisms, this plant absorbs carbon dioxide in water for photosynthesis, thereby preventing the acidification of water.

This reduction in the acidity of the water, even in short periods of time throughout the day, allows the production of calcium shells for aquatic organisms.
In spite of the fact that the best way to prevent the acidification of ocean water is to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere, marine grass can also be effective in this regard, according to researchers.
