Scientists determine Green Bay suffers from a "Dead Zone"

Scientists have determined that parts of the Bay of Green Bay are suffering from a "Dead Zone" due to lack of oxygen in the water.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Scientists have determined that parts of the Bay of Green Bay are suffering from a "Dead Zone" due to lack of oxygen in the water.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is working with NEW Water to address the culprit.

Researchers say that phosphorus appears to be creating large amounts of algae blooms, which is depleting the water of oxygen, killing off the fish supply.
