Abstract:

A workshop held at the USGS National Wetlands Research Center on February 18, 1998, identified 13 strategies andor measures that should be considered for nutrient abatement in the Lower Mississippi River Valley and coastal Louisiana. Some of these actions were evaluated to be more feasible to implement than others, but all of the strategies identified in this workshop were considered to be reasonable approaches for addressing the hypoxia problem in the gulf. The workshop was attended by 35 participants from the Federal and State governments, academia, and private sector. U.S. senator John Breaux LA gave a briefing to participants in which he reaffirmed his commitment to take action on addressing the issue of hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico.
