The size and form of a given aquatic system, i.e., the morphometry, influences the way in which the system functions, since the depth-characteristics influence resuspension and internal loading of nutrients, the nutrient concentrations regulate the primary production, which in turn regulates the secondary production, including zooplankton and fish (see Håkanson and Boulion, 2002a).
