As EU member and Contracting Party of the OSPAR Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the north-east Atlantic, Belgium has the obligation to take measures to protect its maritime area against the adverse effects of eutrophication. Eutrophication in Belgian coastal waters results from climate-driven transboundary (SW-Atlantic waters, Rhine) and local (Ijzer, Scheldt) inputs of land-based unbalanced nutrients (excess of N over Si and/or P) and manifests as high-biomass algal blooms (mainly the Haptophycea Phaeocystis) that impact the ecosystem function and services. An increased understanding of the links between changing nutrient loads and ecosystem response is needed to guide formulation of EU regulations for the reduction of nutrient inputs to the North Sea and the optimisation of goods and services such as offshore mussel farming. AMORE III address the dual control of changing human activity and climate on eutrophication in the Belgian coastal zone ( and the feedback effect on goods (newly-deployed offshore mussel farming) and services (atmospheric CO2 absorption).
