Phytoplankton in the Scallop Culture Area in Minonosok Bight (Pos'eta Bay, Sea of Japan)

Phytoplankton in the Scallop Culture Area in Minonosok Bight (Pos'eta Bay, Sea of Japan) 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.

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.
