Ecosurveys Ltd has been commissioned by National Rivers Authority Anglian Region to carry out an Aquatic Macrophyte Survey of sites along the River Nar from Litcham to Kings Lynn in North Norfolk. The aims of the survey were to ascertain the level of eutrophication in the River Nar; to compare the present day river macrophyte flora with earlier data; to make an assessment of macrophyte sampling strategy; and to make recommendations for monitoring macrophytes of the River Nar. The methods used for field survey and to analyse the results obtained are described in section 2, and the results of these analyses are given in section 3. These results and other aspects of the study are discussed in section 4 and recommendations for future monitoring based on this study are given in section 5. Sections 6 and 7 give conclusions and a reference list respectively.
