This paper presents the status of summer oxygen conditions in estuarine and coastal waters around Ireland between 2003 and 2007. Of the 95 water bodies surveyed, 85 had oxygen levels sufficient to support aquatic life. This corresponds to a surface area of 3125km super(2) or 99.4% of the total area assessed. Ten water bodies, representing a surface area of 20.2km super(2), were deficient in oxygen but still capable of supporting most aquatic life. No evidence of hypoxia (
