The Gulf of Mexico's Dead Zone

The Gulf of Mexico's dead zone is the size of Connecticut. Scientist found 5,052 miles of low oxygen water, off of much of Louisianan coast and parts of the Texas coast. The zone is formed nutrients that wash into the gulfs water; largely agriculture fertilizer and waste water. Marine life struggles to find a source of oxygen to survive within the zone. This hurts the biodiversity, and makes it hard for animals to find a source of food. The Gulf of Mexico's dead zone is one if the largest in the world. Excessive nutrients that runs of land into rivers and coasts creates an extensive amount algae, which sinks and decomposes in the water. When this happens it depletes the supply pf healthy marine life. This is dangerous because it can have a severe drop in marine activity.     kkk
