I took part in a discussion in a different Facebook Group that had to do with growing a Social Enterprise. The discussion was a question regarding Dead Zones in the Ocean. The question came up after I introduced myself in the group as a Marine Ecologist to which I usually get a reply regarding a question about the Ocean.

The question of what is a Dead Zone in the Ocean was quickly followed up by someone saying they didn't think Scientists new the cause of the dead zone. As a Marine Ecologist, I had to step in. I told the person what they were, how they were caused and what we can do to decrease the spatial extent of these dead zones. 

I decided to reiterate what I wrote in the discussion here, on the podcast in case you hadn't heard of them either. 

Listen to the episode and let me know in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group whether you have heard of dead zones.

Enjoy the Podcast!!!
