Hello everyone
I'd like to ask about the meaning of "choke of" in the following context.

But it's true. A new continent always grows on the sunlit face of the world. The water below is always choked of its free oxygen.

Does "choked of" mean that the water loses its oxygen as a result of some process?

Yes, but that is a very bizarre way to phrase it.
