Ocean acidification, Food, CO2 


​In the Brown et al. study ‘Increased food supply mitigates ocean acidification effects on calcification but exacerbates effects on growth’ they show disagreement with the tested hypothesis and data analysis methodology used in our 2016 study. We acknowledge careful criticism and a constructive dialogue are necessary to progress science and address these issues in this reply.
