The subjective assessment of the classification of estuary quality for 1991 has been completed. All 22 estuaries in the region have been assessed in terms of their chemical, biological and aesthetic quality. Nineteen estuaries were determined as being in Class A and complied with their quality objective of Class A - good quality. For the remainder, parts of each estuary were classified as Class B - fair quality, the rest of each estuary being classified as Class A. Explanations for failures are given for those estuaries which failed to achieve maximum points for aesthetic, biological or chemical quality.
