Quantifying the consequences of the EU Water Policy for ecosystem service delivery at Loch Leven, Scotland

Quantifying the consequences of the EU Water Policy for ecosystem service delivery at Loch Leven, Scotland

Quantifying the links between the ecological status and the provision of ecosystem services for a freshwater lake. Focus is on understanding environmental quality needed to deliver recreation and fishing services provided by the lake, and the value of these two services.

Potential impacts/benefits: 

  • Demonstration of positive synergistic provision of ecosystem services due to river basin management under the Water Framework Directive, which is originally only aimed at achieving good ecological status.
  • Delivering practical management recommendations to help protect the ecological status and freshwater biodiversity, while maintaining ecosystem service provision at the catchment scale.
