Abstract

The changes in distribution and abundance of the barnacleBalanus rostranus that occurred at various sites of Amurskii Bay in 1982–1995 were studied. Increased water and sediment pollution by industrial and sewage discharge were found to most significantly affect the abundance of larvae, food composition, and the availability of substrata suitable for larva to settle. The mortality of young barnacles increased and the growth rate decreased in the most polluted areas of the bay at water temperatures higher than 18°C and at critically low oxygen saturation.
