Abstract

The species composition and quantitative characteristics of the phytoplankton in Minonosok Bight were studied in the spring and fall of 1997 and 1999. One hundred thirty-three algal species and intraspecies taxa were identified. The cell density of the phytoplankton varied from 0.03 to 19.6 million cells/l, and its biomass ranged from 0.02 to 19 g/m3. Both the density and biomass were at a maximum in June and August. Nine potentially toxic species were found, among which the genera Pseudo-nitzschia H. Pera., Alexandrium Halim, and Dinophysis Ehr. predominated. The density of these genera exceeded the reportedly harmul level during the whole summer.
