  18. 18. Larval Disease Challenge: SummaryNo detectable difference in Pacific oystersusceptibility to vibriosis at elevated pCO2.Considerations: Ø  Larval population variation Ø  Length of exposure to low pH conditions Ø  Carbonate ion availability and saturation states during spawning (Gazeau et al. 2011) Ø  Vt culture conditions
  19. 19. Conclusions Ü  Vt growth at 25°C was not significantly different at elevated pCO2 Ü  12°C Vt growth to be performed again to capture full growth curve at 750 ppm Ü  No significant differences in susceptibility to vibriosis were detected at either larval age or pCO2 level in Pacific oysters Ø  Important to consider factors that may affect host susceptibility that are difficult to account for
