Mother Nature Network reports that according to the NOAA, fertilizer and insecticide polluted run-off cause this Dead Zone.  The chemicals cause excessive algae growth off shore which depletes Oxygen …anyone can deduce what happens to animals with no Oxygen…even fish.

All this and oil on the sea floor too.

Bamboo growth requires NO fertilizers, NO pesticides, and NO excessive irrigation (and subsequent polluted runoff).  Cotton however is just the opposite.
