ABSTRACT
The accumulation of algal biomass and marine microalgae species that flourish even during mild winters is a well-known phenomenon that has increased during the recent years in the Black Sea coastal area. The influences of this phenomenon have a very important ecological role as biotic component of the ecosystem, providing a cleaner marine water by removing nutrients and oxygen consumption in the process of photosynthesis and are reflected in a positive way the marine ecosystem. It also represents a favorable biotope for invertebrates and fish, but harmful to the marine environment due to metabolic waste that produce the phenomenon of hypoxia. This new usage of algae may be considered a crucial element for a sustainable development and for improving the environment quality and may hearten us to use nature for the economic activities needed to fulfill all human needs, and to maintain a safe environment for the present and future generations.
