Zone affects YOU!
Dead Zone in the Gulf of Mexico and the many other dead zones in coastal
waters around the world are damaging the ability of the world's oceans
to produce the seafood that you and everyone else desire.
the same nutrients that are creating the Dead Zone in the Gulf of Mexico
are causing excessive plant and algae growth in tens of thousands of freshwater
lakes through the U.S. The result is stinky, algae-choked waters, and
even fish kills. Think about that next time you want to go swimming or
policies to reduce the amounts of nutrients entering the Mississippi River
and then flowing into the Gulf of Mexico may affect the prices we all
pay for agricultural products, municipal wastewater treatment, and many
other goods and services we rely on.
