The North Sea is rich in phytoplankton, microscopic organisms that play a key role in the marine food web. High concentrations of phytoplankton can have a negative impact on ecosystems, in the form oxygen depletion and a reduction in shellfish population. Anouk Blauw investigates to what extent variations in phytoplankton concentration in the North Sea can be related to changing environmental conditions.
