Lake Edku (Egypt), a 131 km2, shallow brackish-water lagoon, connects to the Mediterranean sea through a narrow strait at Maadia, which flushs western-Delta drain-water into the Abukir bay. Since the construction of the Asswan high-dam the lagoon freshwater input has doubled, causing changes in its major and minor (nutrient) salts which seem to bear on the lagoons productivity and community structure.
