Summary

Almost 11 million people live within the Humber's catchment area, resulting in industrial and wastewater discharges to the Humber and its river systems. Hypoxia has been measured in the upper Humber for more than 100 years. Hypoxia is currently viewed as the main water quality issue in the Humber due to it's effects on migrating fish.
