Yes Doxfordman they usually keep pumping fresh sea water thru the tank to keep the Crab alive and only drain it down to land them.

ive been aboard her since she was new but left a couple o months ago before my daughter was born to work on a cygnus 35 so i could be home at nights. miss it !! he can put air through the tank aswell which is better working down the west coast as he is now as theres a lot of fresh water in the lochs and it doesnt take much fresh water to do a lot o damage to the catch.

Thanks for the info warrior I didn't realise they had oxygenators built into the tanks. Good idea especially when you take brackish or fresh water into the equation , that kills Crabs off very quickly !!
