Relationships show that sustained response cannot be effected before it can be demonstrated (i) that nutrient is exhausted at a lower concentration of algae than the existing maxima and (ii) that in situ recycling is unable to make up the shortfall.

Production through much of the year will be subject to other constraints; for example, the availability of light beneath the water surface. Seasonal differences in day length and periodic fluctuations in the depth of light penetration by active wavelengths often have an overriding effect on the net production rates and the supportive capacity. Temperature also affects production rates but, through its influence on the thermal expansion of water, it also induces changes in the depth of vertical mixing and resistance to wind-stirring processes.
