Description
Abundance and Biomass of soft-bottom benthos from Karkinitsky gulf (North-Western Crimea, The Black Sea, Ukraine) for period within 1980-1989 more

Karkinitsky Gulf is shallow (depth up to 35-40m) and one of the most productive nearshore region of the Black Sea. First investigation of benthic assemblages was made by L.V. Arnoldi (USSR) in 1930s. The pronounced changes in the Gulf bottom assemblages had occurred since 1930s till 1980s due to results of intensive fisheries, mussel’ dredging activity, general pollution of the water area as well as agricultural developments at the adjacent near shore zones. Benthic Samples in Karkinitsky Gulf had been taken during several irregular sampling cruises by R/V within period 1980-1989.
