A study of the phytoplankton of the Welsh Dee Estuary, a part of Liverpool Bay, is reported. Correlative studies of the phytoplankton and its biomass with those of the chemical parameters indicated relationships between periodicity of phytoplankton and water quality and the possible utilization of nutrients and some trace metals by the algae. The phytoplankton biomass judged by chlorophyll content ranged from 1.63 to 4.28 mg L-1. The species diversity of the phytoplankton varied from 2.33 to 3.98 characteristic of the oceanic plankton. The water quality was found to be within acceptable limits.
