Abstract

The article presents the results of analyses of 21 water quality indices measured at 15 stations in the area of the Odra River estuary during the summer flood crest outflow in 1997. It was found out that a number of the analysed indices, evaluated according to the legal criteria implemented in Poland for the assessment of the quality of inland water, reached excessive values pointing to unfavourable quality changes in the environment of the Odra River estuary which lasted for several days. These changes posed threat to health and living of ichthyofauna in the estuary.


Key words: fish habitat, water quality, Odra River estuary, Szczecin Lagoon
