Does Algae grow in dead zones?

    Algae causes dead zones. Nitrogen-rich waters (caused mostly by runoff from fertilizers that get into rivers and from there goes to the sea) cause huge algal blooms, which in turn consume nearly all of the oxygen, choking out pretty much everything else in the ocean. It’s only when the algal blooms are broken  up by storms and the like that the dead zones disappate.
