Description:
Eutrophic areas are high primary productivity zones due to excessive nutrients and therefore subject to algal blooms resulting in poor water quality. This can also lead to hypoxic conditions. Hypoxia is the condition where oxygen dissolved in water becomes reduced in concentration to a point where is becomes detrimental to aquatic organisms living in the system.
