Crabs can suffocate in hypoxic waters, writes Julia Rosen (@1juliarosen) for Hakai Magazine, but a new partnership between crabbers and researchers at Oregon State University is helping scientists learn about this problem so fisheries and fishermen can adjust. Rosen takes us aboard a participating boat, weaving science and fisheries policy together with scenes from one busy day, and night, in the life of commercial crabbers. Photo: Francis Chan, OSU
