Die Benthos-Biocönosen der unter dem Einfluß der Donau stehenden Gebiete des Vordeltas

[The benthic biocoenoses in that part of the Danube delta which is influenced by the river]

Popescu-Marinescu, Virginia


The fauna of a bay connected with the Black Sea was investigated. As it lies in the delta of the River Danube and some fresh water enters it, the range of salinity is great. The nature of the bottom varies too. However the fauna, a mixture of freshwater, marine and mixohaline Ponto-Caspian elements, is generally abundant and there is plenty of food for fish.
