The annual nitrogen loading to the south arm of the Mondego Estuary was roughly estimated to 134t(126tof nitrate and 8t of nitrite), of which 14t is still in the system (181 of nitrate were imported and 4tof nitrite were exported) and 120 t were transported to the sea. For phosphorus the loading was estimated to be 14t (1t was imported to the system, while 15t were exported to the sea, which means that 141 were net released from the south arm of the estuary). In Table 9.13 are listed the chemical aspects of the area.

We respect Nature and it gives us its bounty, but in the recent past greedy money hungry corporations have made us all so destructive, so wasteful.
