In the Southern Adriatic depression nitrogen and phosphorous salts are concentrated in the bottom water. The Redfield ratio, same 29, is higher at Pomo and D transect, mostly on the bottom, because phosphorous is limiting and nitrogen is abundant. Northern waters influence this southern area, together with surface and intermediate waters coming from Ionian sea, and western shelf waters which tend to sink to the bottom. Key-words: Adriatic Sea, thermohaline characteristics, nutrient salts, Redfield ratio
