Environmental and biological research was carried out in 1979 in the Puck Lagoon area - a part of the Nadmorski Landscape Park. The objective was to assess the state of the aquatic environment of the area as well as its degradation. The material for analyses was sampled several times in June and July 1979 at 9 sampling stations in the central part of the Puck Lagoon and at 8 sampling profiles located near the river mouths (3-7 stations at each profile). The results, which are at DAE IEP disposal, consist mainly of mean values for particular sampling stations and profiles. The results of hydrochemical analyses are incomplete. Some data exist only in the form of maps, diagrams etc.
