Studies on selected physico-chemical parameters and plankton were carried out in waters off Akarpati during February-March 1978. In general, nutrient values increased towards offshore. However, along the northern transect a reverse trend was observed. Concentration of nutrients were higher in bottom than surface water. Diurnal variation of phytoplankton pigments showed great amount of fluctuation. From the chlorophyll and zooplankton data it would appear that the prevailing water quality supports fairly rich plankton population
