This year's dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico may be as large as the state of New Jersey, National Geographic is reporting. The publication quotes scientists who say that would make it the biggest dead zone ever recorded.
A New Jersey-size dead zone may put a chokehold on the Gulf of Mexico this summer, according to a forecast released this week.
