Abstract/Summary

This report provides an overview of water and sediment quality within the Mersey Estuary European Marine Site (EMS) and examines evidence for their influence on bioloigcal condition. It has not been possible to determine adequately whether prevailing conditions in the Mersey impact on the interest features of the site as studies which address this issue have not been carried out. It is only possible to review the current level of knowledge regarding the biological and chemical status for the estuary, and extrapolate risks to the bird population. Often information relates to sites outside the EMS; where this is the case the authors have tried to appraise the general status of the estuary, based on best available knowledge.
