Hypoxia & Wetlands Restoration

Hypoxia is the condition in which dissolved oxygen is below the level necessary to sustain most animal life.
For many members of an aquatic community, hypoxia is like drowning, because life-giving dissolved oxygen levels in a body of water drop much lower than normal. Hypoxia often occurs when high concentrations of nutrients enter water as a result of human actions.
