I 'think' it has to do with the metabolism. From what I understand, GPO's live an extra few years because they tend to live in much colder water. Then again there are those dwarf arctic octopus species that were in the news a couple of weeks ago...

The lack of oxygen may directly affect their metabolism, causing them to die sooner as AM said. Im not too sure, I dont know if any scientists are too sure. If I can find a good scientific journal paper on this I'll let you know.
