Following massive fish kills in Athalassa Lake, MER’s phytoplankton expert (Polina Polycarpou) was asked to examine two water samples from the lake





Phytoplankton analyses (composition, abundance and biomass) were carried out in water samples from Athalassa lake, Nicosia. The first sample was taken at the end of February (27/02/2014) and the second, at the beginning of March (04/03/2014). A report with our results was prepared and delivered at the 10th of March, to the Department of Forests of Cyprus.
