Ocean ‘Breathability’ Key to Past, Future Habitat of West Coast Marine Species

May 15, 2020 By Hannah Hickey UW News
A new study led by the University of Washington finds that the animals’ ability to breathe in that water may be key to where and when they thrive. The study, published May 15 in Science Advances, uses recent understanding of water breathability and historical data to explain population cycles of the northern anchovy. The results for this key species could apply to other species in the current.
