Threats

CWCs are incredibly diverse and beautiful organisms but they are also very delicate, and because they are slow growing they cannot keep up with the rapid dynamic changes occurring to their surroundings brought on by human activities. These can be split into direct and indirect causesĀ (Davies et al. 2007).

  1. Commercial Fishing
  2. Hydrocarbons
  3. Ocean Acidification and Climate Change
  4. Carbon Capture and Storage
  5. Dumping And Waste Removal
