They definitely can. When large amounts of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous seep into rivers or oceans, an algal bloom happens. Algal blooms suck up a lot of the oxygen around them. When the algae die and start decomposing, even more oxygen is sucked up. Without enough oxygen, marine life will die and thus a dead zone will occur.
