The paper describes a quantitative investigation of relationships between the growth of phytoplankton, and climatic and hydrodynamic conditions in temperate fjords with marked tides, as exemplified by Puget Sound, Washington. Algal growth in the open waters of the central basin of the Sound is dominated by a number of intense blooms beginning in late April or May and recurring throughout the summer. Rarely, and only briefly, does nitrate become exhausted.
