AbstractFreshwater eutrophication has been successfully predicted using a combination of chlorophyll a:total phosphorus regression model and phosphorus mass balance model. The widespread increased nutrient loading to freshwaters has also led to increased nutrient loading to coastal areas world wide, thereby transferring the eutrophication problem to the coast. In the absence of models specific for coastal waters, the models derived for freshwaters are being applied. Whether the models transferred from freshwater are applicable to marine coastal waters has not been, however, sufficiently tested, largely because of the paucity of studies on coastal eutrophication. Yet, these models are essential to the management of the quality of coastal waters. Here we review, on the basis of a thorough bibliographic search, the development of studies on coastal eutrophication over the past decade and examine the geographical spread of the effort, in an attempt to establish whether the empirical basis to test the performance of eutrophication models or to derive specific models for the coastal zone is now available
