Generally speaking, in mesotrophic lakes, Pyrrophyta, Cryptophyta, and Bacillariophyta are the dominant species, and in eutrophic lakes, Chlorophyta and Cyanophyta are the dominant species [21].

Among the other groups analyzed, Bacillariophyta and Pyrrophyta were negatively correlated with Diff2-10m, and Cryptophyta showed only a weak correlation with temperature at 2 m (Table 2).
Cyanobacteria were the most abundant organisms, followed by Chlorophyta, Bacillariophya and Pyrrophyta. There was a significant difference in mean percentage values of Pyrrophyta between the control and the probiotic treatments (P < 0.05) between the 10th and 16th weeks.
Results showed that the total phytoplankton biomass at the scallop farm was 10-folded that of intertidal zone: in the scallop farming area, diatoms were predominant (99.6%) with rare species of Pyrrophyta (0.4%), whereas at the intertidal area, the proportion of diatoms fell to 70.1%, and species of Pyrrophyta and Chrysophyta occupied 25.4% and 4.5% of total biomass, respectively.
