Abstract

Inventory of the flora and fauna of marine habitats in the eastern part of the Adriatic Sea is necessary for the successful conservation and management planning in protected but also in unprotected areas. At ten stations within the bay Ribnjak we sampled squares (40 x 40 cm) in the triplet and we made the database of animal species and we determined the morphologically structure of seagrass meadows Cymodocea nodosa (number of leaves within shoots, number of shoots within a square, the length and width sheets). The highest meadow density is at the station R7, and the lowest at the station R4. The maximum length of leaves was measured at the station R8, and the lowest at the station R9. The maximum width of leaves was measured at the station R8, and the lowest at the station R1. The fauna of seagrass meadows inside the square was collected using a „catcher“, and 31 different animal species was determined. The maximum abundance of fauna was recorded at stations R7 and R10, and the lowest at the station R1.
