Abstract

Starting with 70ies, Romanian Black Sea shore is confronting with marine eutrophication, as a result of nutrients input from sources such as the Danube River and coastal anthropogenic activities. Due to economical decline in early 90ies, the effects of eutrophication (phytoplankton blooms, fauna mortalities) have had low occurrence.
