A total of 70 taxa belong to four divisions in phytoplankton of both lagoons were determined. Of these, 42 taxa were belong to Bacillariophyta, 15 taxa to Dinophyta, 10 taxa to Cyanophyta and 3 taxa to Chlorophyta. Akyatan Lagoon has been found richer (54 taxa) than Tuzla Lagoon in term of species number (42 taxa). In Akyatan Lagoon species number was relatively high in winter and spring whereas in Tuzla Lagoon it was high in summer and autumn period.
