Description 
Summary

The project was made up of 3 components: identification of the sources of nutrients and their behaviour in the process of productivity of the Sado estuary; assessment of the impact of aquaculture in the environment; and the study of the influence of Sado estuary waters in the chemistry and productivity of nearby coastal waters.
