Short summary
Ocean deoxygenation due to climate warming is an evolving threat for organisms that are not well adapted to O2 depletion, such as many pelagic fish species. Other better-adapted organisms, such as some benthic foraminifera species, might benefit from ocean deoxygenation. Benthic foraminifera are a group of marine protists and can have specific adaptations to O2 depletion such as the ability to respire nitrate instead of O2. This paper reviews the current state of knowledge about these organisms.
