A very large dead zone, an area of water with no or very little oxygen, is expected to form in the Gulf of Mexico this year — a trend in recent years, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Nothing new there. Every year it is there. More so due to the Mississippi River being a bit higher this year so far.

The information they seem to forget is that the dead zone is less than a meter think, and starts at the bottom. Quite often it can be just a foot thick.

Yeah, it hit our area so bad last year fishing is still off. I'd just start planning for the hunting season if I were you.
