This zombie is a really strong one. With a massive 7/8 for just 6, he can destroy tough plants while surviving at least an attack from one. There is also his Amphibious trait; since almost all Amphibious plants are not as powerful as those without the Amphibious trait, he can survive even more hits than he would on anywhere else. If he gains additional traits from Wizard Gargantuar and/or Smashing Gargantuar, or has his stats boosted, Deep Sea Gargantuar can easily end the game in your favor.
However, because of his high cost, this zombie can only be played later in the game. Make sure to keep your defenses alive until you get to play him, because even though he is a powerhouse, he cannot single-handedly save you from defeat if you are overwhelmed. Also, by then, your opponent can also use powerful cards to deal with Deep Sea Gargantuar; even Solar Flare, Chompzilla, and Captain Combustible, the three heroes with no Amphibious plants, have their ways to counter him. While you could play Gargologist to play him at least two turns earlier, this combo can primarily only be played with The Smash.
This zombie is one of the strongest Amphibious zombies and should be removed quickly. However, using plants to one-shot him is not recommended because the options are extremely limited (Guacodile and the moving card + non-Amphibious plant combo), and those that can do the job cannot survive an attack from Deep Sea Gargantuar. Instead, just like any zombie with massive stats, hard removal is the best option. While Squash is good, Shamrocket is an even better choice, being able to destroy Deep Sea Gargantuar for a cheaper price. Another strategy is using transforming cards (The Great Zucchini, Transmogrify, Goatify) since you get to deal with a much weaker zombie. While Rose and Citron have instant-kills themselves, the last two examples are a lot cheaper than any instant-kill; also, the first example is the only one available to Green Shadow and Nightcap if they wish to neutralize him before combat.
