The species composition and quantitative distribution of the diatom genus Pseudo-nitzschia H. Peragallo, 1990 in Russian waters of the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk

The species composition and quantitative distribution of the diatom genus Pseudo-nitzschia H.... This paper studies the species composition and quantitative distribution of diatoms that belong to the genus Pseudo-nitzschia in the Russian waters of the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk. In total, 11 species of this genus were found in the area, including 7 that are known as being potentially toxic. The highest concentrations of Pseudo-nitzschia microalgae (1.4 × 106–2.7 × 106 cells/L) were found in the summer and autumn in the Peter the Great Bay of the Sea of Japan and the lowest concentrations (2.5 × 102–1 × 104 cells/L) were found in the Sakhalinsky and Akademiya bays of the Sea of Okhotsk. The species diversity of potentially toxic diatoms was greatest (seven species) and the cell concentrations highest (over 6 × 105 cells/L) in the Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan, and in the Aniva Bay, Sea of Okhotsk. The density of potentially toxic species was highest near the northeastern coast of Sakhalin Island, in the Amur River estuary, and in adjacent waters. This paper also presents geographical distribution maps of Pseudo-nitzschia species and maps of the density distribution of potentially toxic microalgae over the studied area and identifies potential amnesic shellfish poisoning areas. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

This paper studies the species composition and quantitative distribution of diatoms that belong to the genus Pseudo-nitzschia in the Russian waters of the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk. In total, 11 species of this genus were found in the area, including 7 that are known as being potentially toxic. The highest concentrations of Pseudo-nitzschia microalgae (1.4 × 106–2.7 × 106 cells/L) were found in the summer and autumn in the Peter the Great Bay of the Sea of Japan and the lowest concentrations (2.5 × 102–1 × 104 cells/L) were found in the Sakhalinsky and Akademiya bays of the Sea of Okhotsk. The species diversity of potentially toxic diatoms was greatest (seven species) and the cell concentrations highest (over 6 × 105 cells/L) in the Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan, and in the Aniva Bay, Sea of Okhotsk. The density of potentially toxic species was highest near the northeastern coast of Sakhalin Island, in the Amur River estuary, and in adjacent waters. This paper also presents geographical distribution maps of Pseudo-nitzschia species and maps of the density distribution of potentially toxic microalgae over the studied area and identifies potential amnesic shellfish poisoning areas.
