Description 
Summary

A spatial survey of Lough Foyle and Estuary at 12 stations on 35 occasions between Jan 1997 - July 1998 was completed to determine the trophic status of Lough Foyle and the Foyle Estuary. In addition nutreint inputs to the lough were calculated and mathematical modelling used to evaluate the effectiveness of management options.
