The marine diatom Skeletonema costatum is commonly found in coastal and estuarine areas from the temperate zones to the tropical zones. Blooms caused by Skeletonema costatum have been reported in almost all the eastern coastal regions of China seas. Jiaozhou Bay, located at the middle of Yellow Sea of China, is a shallow semi-closed basin. Skeletonema costatum constitutes a major fraction of dominant species among more than forty red tide organisms documented in this bay. This paper presents a dynamic course of Skeletonema costatum bloom occurring in July of 1998. Relationship between ambient factors and biomass has been analysed to gain insights into the blooming mechanism.
