"Climate change and nutrient pollution are driving the oxygen from our
oceans, and threatening many species of fish.
That's the conclusion of the biggest study of its kind, undertaken by
conservation group IUCN.
While nutrient run-off has been known for decades, researchers say that
climate change is making the lack of oxygen worse.
Around 700 ocean sites are now suffering from low oxygen, compared with
45 in the 1960s.
Researchers say the depletion is threatening species including tuna,
marlin and sharks."
Let’s hope we can still avoid killing all the world’s fish.
