The other subareas should be subjected to the Comprehensive Procedure for a final classification. There are few observations along the coast, which implies a subjective assessment to large areas. Areas without observations were classified as Non Problem Areas (NPA) if - The anthropogenic nutrient load is low, and - The area have mainly high and unrestricted water exchange. Areas with reported observations and any report of environmental disturbance that can be connected to nutrient enrichment should be subjectec to the Comprehensive Procedure.
