A spatial survey of Strangford Lough at 15 stations on 53 occasions between July 1993 - December 1995 was completed to determine the trophic status of Strangford Lough. In addition nutreint inputs to the lough were calculated and mathematical modelling used to evaluate the effectiveness of management options.
