Considerable changes in the structure of phytobenthos occurred in the Puck Lagoon in the last 32 years. Furcellaria lumbricalis Lyngb. and Fucus vesiculosus L., previously represented in the Lagoon very abundantly, are absent at present. Up to 70% of the total biomass of the benthic vegetation are contributed by the Ectocarpaceae which grew for about 3.5 months in 1988, i.e. from April until mid-July.
