137 It is known that, along with light and temperature, the factors that determine the development and spread of algae include the intensity of water flows (IWF), substrate type, and salinity. The IWF decrease in the bays of the Barents Sea, especially in the coves, is accompanied, as a rule, by a decrease in salinity and change to sand or silty substrate, which may negatively affect the growth of algae [1, 2]. Nevertheless, there are fucus species that live in various parts of bays. In this work, we studied the population structure of Fucus vesiculosus L., species which is widespread in the littoral zone of eastern Murman.
