In July 2014, the Task Force to Study the Impact of Ocean Acidification on State Waters was formed (Chapter 383, Acts of 2014).

The Task Force analyzed the best scientific findings available concerning ocean acidification, and the potential risks of such acidification on Maryland waters and fisheries. Also, the Task Force was to recommend strategies to mitigate the potential impact of ocean acidification on State waters and fisheries.

In January 2015, the Task Force submitted its report to the Governor and General Assembly.

Authorization for the Task Force ended June 30, 2015.
