О влиянии загрязнений на морские организмы Новороссийской бухты Черного моря
Hydrochemical investigations showed that the process of pollution of Novorossiysk Bay of the Black Sea, in progress during the past five years, has affected distribution of vegetation in various areas of the bay, taking the form of a shift in the boundaries of the floristic districts and a reduction of the growths of some species of algae and grasses. A tendency of the biocenoses tooward the exit from the bay is noted. Some changes have also been observed in the quantitative composition of the zoobenthos during the past five years: increase in numbers of species readily tolerating pollution of water and a decrease in numbers of species which do not easily tolerate pollution. Thus, petroleum products and sewage, which are polluting the bay, may prove to be one of the major causes of a change in biocoenoses and disturbance of the natural reproduction of the fish resources of Novorossiysk Bay. To protect the waters against pollution, it is essential to purify industrial wastes and sewage, as well as waters with petroleum product impurities.
