Increasing reports of fish life littered on shores or massive areas of little life indicate a growing issue; our sea life is dying.
In coastal waters, scientists report the continual spread of dead zones. Known as hypoxia, dead zones are areas in the sea with low levels of oxygen. As oxygen decreases, algae blooms, resulting in conditions in which only a few organisms can survive. Literally, the depleted oxygen levels cause marine life to suffocate.
