    Cultural eutrophication refers to the process of accelerated nutrient enrichment, particularly nitrogen and phosphorus, in aquatic ecosystems due to human activities. It occurs when excessive amounts of nutrients, primarily from human sources like agriculture, sewage, and industrial runoff, enter bodies of water.

    Cultural eutrophication is primarily a result of human activities such as the use of fertilizers in agriculture, improper sewage treatment, urban runoff, and industrial discharges. To mitigate and prevent cultural eutrophication, measures like improved wastewater treatment, responsible agricultural practices, and better stormwater management are crucial. By reducing nutrient inputs into water bodies, it is possible to restore and maintain the ecological balance of aquatic ecosystems.
