Title: Impact of nutrients in estuaries - Proceedings of a workshop on 23 May 1995 (639/1/A)
Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
This report contains the proceedings of a workshop held at English Nature Headquarters in Peterborough on 23 May 1995, under the auspices of the National Rivers Authority and English Nature. Estuaries form about a third of the Sites of Special Scientific Interest in England, for which English Nature has responsibility. In addition English Nature has identified some 27 non statutory Sensitive Marine Areas which include both estuarine and marine habitats, some of which have been proposed as possible Special Areas for Conservation. There is a need to know more about the effect of nutrient enrichment in estuarine environments, and English Nature is collaborating with the National Rivers Authority in developing a strategy for management and conservation in the estuarine and coastal region. Research priorities necessary to develop such a strategy must be decided by informed debate, and input from all interested parties has been invited, exemplified by the wide area of interest of those attending the workshop.
