These organisms have the potential to lower, or even completely exhaust, oxygen in the water. When this occurs, life that depends on the presence of oxygen (aerobic) in the waterbody dies or, where possible, the biota moves on to waters with higher oxygen levels. In the absence of oxygen in water, anaerobic bacteria further break down organic matter.
