Eutrophication is an enrichment of a water body by minerals and nutrients that lead to a reduction in water quality, especially a reduction in oxygen content. Although it can be a natural process most modern eutrophication is caused by human activity, especially the use of nitrates and phosphates. A eutrophic water body is characterised by a surface green algal bloom.
