Ocean Acidification Innovation Act of 2017

This bill amends the Federal Ocean Acidification Research and Monitoring Act of 2009 to authorize a federal agency with a representative serving on the Interagency Working Group on Ocean Acidification to carry out a program that awards prizes competitively under the Stevenson-Wydler Technology Innovation Act of 1980 for stimulating innovation to advance the nation's ability to understand, research, or monitor ocean acidification or its impacts or to develop management or adaptation options for responding to ocean acidification.

Priority must be given to establishing programs that address communities, environments, or industries that are in distress due to the impacts of ocean acidification.
