Abstract

Introduction The southern part of the Norwegian west coast is characterized by a large number of fjords and "polls", small land-locked fjords with tidal exchange and usually stagnant bottom water. LindäspoUene, situated about 40 km north of Bergen, are of special interest, since they contain a local herring population. This stock has been studied since 1970 (Dahl et al 1973), and studies have been carried out on the hydrography, on hyperbenthic and pelagic Zooplankton, on benthic fauna and diatoms, the microbial processes in the Sediments, and on the Ciona population. In 1972 the sewage outflow was about doubled, from 200 to 400 persons, and it was decided that the effects on water chemistry and on primary production should be studied within the framework of the Lindas project, a multi disciplinary project studying the impact of industrial development on the Lindas peninsula. The results of the chemical investigation have been published earlier (Lännergren 1975). LindäspoUene are made up of three basins, with a total surface area of about 7 km2 (Fig. 1). The maximum depth is in Spjeldnesosen 90 m and in Straumsosen 60 m. These basins, to which sampling was restricted, are separated from each other and from
