    I believe it was mentioned in an issue of Saltwater Sportsman a few months ago...

    I remember seeing something that because of the heavy rains in Texas the Brazos river actually created a Dead Zone off of the Texas coast

    Installing Googleearth 4.2 on my Mac, I saw this further cite to a 2001 article tied to a dot in the Gulf of Mexico: http://jeq.scijournals.org/cgi/reprint/30/2/275.pdf
    See lines 2 and 3 of Table 1 for mention of both the shallow and deep Texas Shelf.
