Finnish marine experts Seppo Knuuttila, and Marjukka Porvari, explain the connection between farming practice and a form of marine pollution called eutrophication. It can lead to algal blooms and causes serious harm to marine ecosystems. Eutrophication is a particular problem in enclosed seas like the Baltic and is caused when excess fertilizer and animal manure runs off the land via watercourses into the sea. The film visits Finnish farmers Markus and Minna Eerola, to find out how their farming practice aims to reduce nutrient run-off. Stella Höynälänmaa , Conservation officer, with WWF Finland’s Ecological footprint programme, explains the connection between intensive livestock farming and eutrophication and we find out how WWF's Consume Less Meat campaign is encouraging Finnish consumers to reduce their meat consumption as one approach to reducing eutrophication
