What animals are affected by ocean acidification?

Marine animals such as plankton and crab oysters are affected by ocean acidification. These marine animals are unable to form shells and skeletons that impair their survival. 

The destruction of the planktons will affect the aquatic ecosystem as their primary consumers will not be able to sustain themselves and die out as a result.
