Part of: Coastlines of the Southern North Sea

Abstract: Because of its hydrographic and bathymetric characteristics, the southern North Sea supports one of the most productive fisheries in the world. In this chapter, these fisheries are reviewed and the processes leading to the production of this region are described and discussed. The coastal regions of the southern North Sea are also subject to anthropogenic influences especially in the form of river-borne nutrients and contaminants. The potential threat of these anthropogenic inputs to fish and fisheries in the southern North Sea is discussed.
