(a) Quantitative and qualitative study of marine flora and fauna communities (phytoplankton, zooplankton, phytobenthos, zoobenthos, meiobenthos).

(b) Marine ecology surveys on coastal and open sea areas, biological pollution indices, toxic phytoplanktonic blooms.

(c) Study of energy fluxes in marine ecosystems and population dynamics.

(d) Impact of toxic substances on marine environment, toxicity of hydrocarbons, dispersants and other pollutants on marine biocenoses, bioaccumulation and biotransfer studies of heavy metals.
