The Nakdong Estuary Barrage and Reclamation Project has been investigated by studies on the vegetation, macrozoobenthos and birds in the Nakdong River delta, Republic of Korea. This study deals with the preliminary results, obtained during October to November 1983, while the environmental impacts of the barrage were being discussed. The total biomass of Scirpus triqueter , the estuary's most important foodplant for waterfowl (mainly for swans), was assessed at approximately equals 38 multiplied by 3 tonnes dry wt. Of this amount only the roots and rhizomes (9 multiplied by 6 tonnes dry wt) are expected to be consumed by birds. Aquatic weeds in the nearby fresh Jukrim branch provided another food source (5 multiplied by 8 tonnes dry wt)
