    The benthic algal vegetation of Mjöifjördur, situated in the central area of the East Icelandic coast, is described regarding the species distribution from the head to the mouth of the fjord, the main algal associations and zonation patterns. The vegetation gradient along the fjord coast is related to the hydrographic conditions viz. the influence of freshwater discharge in the inner area and that of the cold water masses of the East Icelandic Current in the outer area. Comparisons are made with the vegetation of other Icelandic fjords investigated during surveys of the Icelandic algal vegetation as a whole.
