 Oregon and Washington state researchers have discovered that Oyster "​seed"​ cannot live and grow when the ocean acidity is high.  Thanks to the fact that ocean currents are not constant, but come in waves, fresher water is made available to our coasts for stretches of time that can be measured and somewhat predicted and (until the oceans get more acidic) allows Oyster seed to be put out in oyster beds at the right times. ​ When these oysters get large enough, they can outlast the acid times and grow successfully. ​ Their shells probably do most of their growing during the less acid times. Oregon and Washington state researchers have discovered that Oyster "​seed"​ cannot live and grow when the ocean acidity is high.  Thanks to the fact that ocean currents are not constant, but come in waves, fresher water is made available to our coasts for stretches of time that can be measured and somewhat predicted and (until the oceans get more acidic) allows Oyster seed to be put out in oyster beds at the right times. ​ When these oysters get large enough, they can outlast the acid times and grow successfully. ​ Their shells probably do most of their growing during the less acid times.
