Norwegian Sea

Pressure: Nutrient and organic enrichment

​​Aquaculture production is increasing along the coasts and in fjords of the NwS. Several commercial fish farms are producing salmonids (salmon, trout) and shellfish. With aquaculture the increase in nutrients and enrichment can cause problems locally, but this does not impact the open ocean of the NwS.

Inputs from river run-offs are negligible.
