Description 
Summary

Available data on hydrography and plankton obtained by means of two longitudinal transects taken in the estuaries of Plentzia, Mundaka, Oria, Deva, Txingudi. The most studied estuary is Mundaka. Besides the aforementioned comparative transects, in this estuary daily transects were carried out in the summer months, and samples at fixed points at 1 hour intervals during several tides cycles.
