Dead Zones

And another thing! The oceans of the planet are reportedly rapidly losing their ability to hold oxygen (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/dec/07/oceans-losing-oxygen-at-unprecedented-rate-experts-warn).

Many fish populations (particularly rapid swimming species such as tuna and marlin) are likely to suffer.
