Description 
Summary

In a fertilised pond at the Ria Formosa lagoon system, south of Portugal, where an experiment of the on-growth of Penaeus japonicus took place, a plankton study was carried out over a period of six months (April to September 1987) using Foskamonio as fertiliser. In the same pond and with a different fertiliser (Fosfonitro 220) a similar research was carried out in 1986. Phytoplankton and zooplankton results and their evolution during these two years were described.
