Monitoring of phytoplankton in the area of a sea farm in Vostok Bay (Sea of Japan)

Monitoring of phytoplankton in the area of a sea farm in Vostok Bay (Sea of Japan) The qualitative and quantitative composition of phytoplankton in the area of a sea farm in Vostok Bay (Sea of Japan) was investigated from July 2001 to May 2002. The overall numbers of phytoplankton were 0.008 to 5.3 million cells/liter, and the biomass was 0.02 to 20.5 g/m3. The maximum density and biomass of phytoplankton were observed in summer, fall, and winter. Ten species known to be toxic were recorded. Of these, Pseudo-nitzschia multiseries (Hasle) Hasle, Alexandrium acatenella (Whedon et Kofoid) Balech, and Chattonella marina (Subrahmanyan) Hara et Chihara were found in Vostok Bay for the first time. For the diatom Skeletonema costatum (Greville) Cleve, which is an indicator of extremely eutrophic waters, the cell density was positively correlated with the area of the culture site. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

The qualitative and quantitative composition of phytoplankton in the area of a sea farm in Vostok Bay (Sea of Japan) was investigated from July 2001 to May 2002. The overall numbers of phytoplankton were 0.008 to 5.3 million cells/liter, and the biomass was 0.02 to 20.5 g/m3. The maximum density and biomass of phytoplankton were observed in summer, fall, and winter. Ten species known to be toxic were recorded. Of these, Pseudo-nitzschia multiseries (Hasle) Hasle, Alexandrium acatenella (Whedon et Kofoid) Balech, and Chattonella marina (Subrahmanyan) Hara et Chihara were found in Vostok Bay for the first time. For the diatom Skeletonema costatum (Greville) Cleve, which is an indicator of extremely eutrophic waters, the cell density was positively correlated with the area of the culture site.
