In Focus: Research providing knowledge to inform the future management of nutrient levels in the Coorong South Lagoon

Nutrients are known to be a key driver of aquatic ecosystem health. While nutrients are essential for all living organisms, high nutrient levels can lead to problems such as excessive algal growth, or ‘algal blooms’. Ongoing research by the Goyder Institute has identified that this is the case for the Coorong South Lagoon; the knowledge generated through this important research is being used to support decisions for managing nutrient levels and the health of the system.
