Agricultural fertilizer from 31 states washes into the Mississippi River. Like a topological funnel, the river directs 41 percent of America’s water toward the Delta and some of America’s most productive fishing grounds. The chemicals concentrate in a patch of ocean off the coasts of Louisiana and Texas, encouraging the growth of algae. That growth sucks up oxygen, threatening species that spend time in the shallow waters overlapping the dead zone. Shrimp, fish and crab need to move from inshore nurseries to offshore spawning grounds, but hypoxia blocks their migration. But some farmers are looking at solutions to the problem.

Inspection records describe workers experiencing extreme muscle cramps, vomiting while walking, losing consciousness, feeling shooting pains in their head and chest and getting heatstroke, among other conditions.
