Abstract

Some data on long term seasonal investigation of hydrography and plankton are presented in this paper. The most important fact is that the whole area is exposed to the impact of the fresh water from numerous sources from the coast and submarine springs in, and the impact of rivers Bojana and Drim. The exchange of the intermediate water-masses between the Adriatic and Ionian basins is also of great importance. Basic ecological data, as well as characteristic phytoplankton and zooplankton groups and species are described in this paper.
