The aim of the present paper is to compare the phytoplankton composition during the two sampling periods: 1993-1994 and 2001-2002 in the SE Black Sea coast. A total of 115 species belonging 5 classes were found in the sampling area. Diatoms and Dinoflagellat were the main dominant phytoplankton in the samples for the periods considered, but dinoflagellat ratio was observed to have increased from about 35 % to 41 % in the year 2001-2002.
