Abstract

In a sample of benthos collected at the location of a nuclear submarine accident in Chazhma Cove (Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan), we found remains (valves and shells) of 37 ostracod species, along with living pollution-tolerant organisms. The death of ostracods may be due to the consequences of the nuclear accident, but most likely was caused by domestic and technogenic pollution of the bay by oil products, which are particularly harmful to ostracods. The data provide a vivid example of detrimental anthropogenic impact on the fauna of ostracods, suggesting their increased sensitivity to adverse environmental factors, compared to many other marine organisms.
