Phytoplankton abundance and composition, as well as physical-chemical properties were analysed at nine stations in the NE Adriatic coastal waters along Istrian peninsula, in November 2007. The basin was highly influenced by strong northern wind (bora) forcing. The bora event created a sharp hydrographic front and the strong gradient of phytoplankton distribution. Stations greatly differed with regard to temperature, salinity, and nutrient distribution, showing the prevalence of colder, saltier and nutrient poorer water along the eastern coast. There was a dominance of Pseudo-nitzschia spp. and Chaetoceros spp. species along the western stations. The cell counts were obtained with the Zeiss Axiovert 200 phase-contrast inverted microscope. Fifteen Chaetoceros species were abundant. Taxonomic study with the FEI Morgagni 268D transmission electron microscope revealed four Pseudo-nitzschia species: P. caliantha, P. pungens, P. fraudulenta, P. cuspidate.
