Eutrophication is the enrichment of water by nutrients (normally nitrates and phosphates). Excessive growth of algae and higher forms of plant life can then cause deterioration in the water quality and destroy the balance of flora and fauna.

The UK Eutrophication Forum (UKEF) discusses research and disseminates information on eutrophication. Forum members meet three times per annum. The Forum is supported by the Foundation for Water Research (FWR), the Environment Agency (EA) and the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra).
