2003 to August 2004. Maximum concentrations of nitrates (14.4 mmol Lâ€“1), nitrites (3.5 mmol Lâ€“1), phosphates (0.84 mmol Lâ€“1), and silicates (4.5 mmol Lâ€“1) preceded maximum phytoplankton biomass (5.07 to 6.47 mg mâ€“3 chlorophyll a) in December. Chlorophyll a was positively correlated with oxygen, nitrites and silicates, but negatively correlated with temperature, salinity, transparency and nitrates. Kotor Bay is the most eutrophied environment in the eastern coastal Adriatic Sea.
