Hypoxia in the Mediterranean Sea

Year: 2013 Author: GRID-Arendal
Hypoxic (low oxygen)conditions can be caused by eutrophication. The decrease in oxygen is due both to algae reducing dissolved oxygen through respiration and the decomposition of dead algae. In extreme cases, oxygen depletion can result in the death of marine organisms.
