Fertiliser used on farms gets washed into waterbodies by precipitation in the form of surface runoff. Waterbodies are usually close to agricultural farms as water is needed for the cultivation of crops and the feeding of livestock.
The water bodies have high levels of discharges such as nitrogen and phosphorous enabling algae flourish over the waterbodies.
The algal bloom would then eventually suffocate the aquatic organisms as they would block off all sunlight preventing aquatic plants from photosynthesising and surviving. Without the aquatic plants, the aquatic organisms would not get enough oxygen and therefore dying.
