eutrophication

Summary

Summary: Growth of a superabundance of algae and other microscopic plant life usually from an enrichment of a natural body of water by the addition of dissolved nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus. It may be natural, induced (water pollution), or controlled (harvesting phytoplankton for food in an aquaculture system).
