Many coastal waters of developed nations have experienced widespread and rapid eutrophication (the increase in supply of organic matter) during the last half of the 20 century. This has resulted in increased phytoplankton production, decreased water clarity, often-severe depletion of dissolved oxygen in bottom waters, loss of seagrasses and, in some cases, declines or changes in the quality of fisheries production. Large-scale changes resulting from eutrophication have been documented for… CONTINUE READING
