Growth Comments
Additional Environmental information: The high biomasses during the summer period were the result of high input of inorganic nutrients from the sediments as a result of oxygen deficiency in the calm and sunny summerperiod.

Additional information:
Economic losses:
Management decision: Harvesting of mussels were closed to restricted during several periods because of high concentrations of D. Acuminata and D. Norvegica. Figure 1 and 2.
Additional harmful effect information: No fishkills caused by HABīs were registred in 1995. DSP, PSP and ASP were not registered in 1995.
