Unhappy Dead zones in Gulf of Mexico continue to grow.

Hello,

I have been watching the dead zones in the gulf of Mexico grow, and each year it seems to get bigger and badder. Nitrogen loads are increasing and cause larger dead zones due to hypoxia.

Florida believes that fertilizer is a significant contributer to the Red tide problems that continue to grow worse and kill fish as well.

Check out the latest Noaa report on the dead zones...
