Can kelp and seagrass help oysters adapt to major ocean change? (text, video and audio)

The oceans off Oregon and Washington are ground zero for ocean acidification, and Northwest scientists are working on new ways to adapt. Brian Allen is up to his elbows in cold, black water. He’s hanging over the side of a small boat, trying to pull in a tangle of ropes. They’re heavy and being dragged sideways […]
