Title: River Deben estuary subtidal biological survey, March 1992
Author: M.W. Johnson
Document Type: Monograph
A sub-tidal biological survey of the River Deben estuary was undertaken during March 1992. Biological quality in terms of invertebrate diversity was good throughout the middle and lower estuary. In the upper estuary, diversity was moderate. This was attributed to the transient low salinities that this part of the estuary experiences. Invertebrate production was high in comparison to other Eastern Area estuaries, suggesting a general enrichment of the estuary.
