Eutrophication Workgroup

Established in the summer of 2008, the Eutrophication Workgroup is charged with building on recent efforts to develop and implement a strategy to address the eutrophication issues in Barnegat Bay. A primary objective is to identify the data gaps and information needed to address the complex issue of eutrophication. Over the next several months the Eutrophication Workgroup will be developing a consensus statement regarding the priority information needs in the bay, actions required to address these needs and timeframes for addressing them.
