Description 
Summary

During monitoring in Muuga Bay in 2007, analyses of benthic vegetation (species composition, coverage and biomass), benthic fauna (species composition, abundance and biomass), fish communities and coastal processes were performed. Also, analysis of dynamics of benthic vegetation during 1997-2006 was performed. In 2007 abundance of Macoma balthica and Mytilus edulis increased comparing to the previous year, which denotes to more intensive movement of sediments. Changes in coastal processes were rather small comparing to 2006.
