[edit] Overview

Hypoxia is a phenomenon that occurs in aquatic environments as dissolved oxygen becomes reduced in concentration to a point detrimental to aquatic organisms living in the system.

This is a major concern if the Gulf Coast is going to continue being as productive as it is now. NOAA is leading a research study into the levels of Oxygen that are in the Gulf Coast. This research is called the Gulf Coast Hypoxia Watch and is a yearly study of the levels of oxygen.
