Are there any other man-made (anthropogenic) factors that stimulate eutrophication, in addition to extra loads of P and/or N? ** Who cited some of the author’s papers presenting various aspects of this innovation or related subjects: Water quality of effluent-dominated ecosystems: ecotoxicological, hydrological, and management considerations.

A new reason for and factor contributing to the symptom of eutrophication, excessive abundance of phytoplankton, was discovered in this paper. This factor was discovered to be a decrease in activity of filterfeeders in the aquatic ecosystem. The author discovered that it is surfactants and detergent that decrease the filtering activity of filter-feeders exemplified by bivalve mollusks. Thus in the paper, a new link was

As a result of his new experiments, the author discovered an additional and important factor that contributes to eutrophication. This factor is connected with neither P, nor N. This factor is surfactants which inhibit filterfeeders. As a result, a new methodology and measures to prevent and control eutrophication are proposed. Application: to ensure water sustainability , and water quality.

discovered between chemical pollution with ecotoxicants (exemplified by surfactants and detergents) and eutrophiucation. A new solution was suggested to solve the problem of eutrophication. This solution is a decrease in chemical pollution of water with detergents which have surfactants as part of their chemical composition.
