Abstract North Pacific Ocean between the Yellow Sea and Taiwan Strait. It is one of the largest mar-ginal seas in the world, sustaining an enhanced primary productivity due to rich supplies of nutri-ents from terrestrial and marine sources (Walsh 1991, Wollast 1991 1993). The East China Sea shelf receives rich supplies of nutrients mainly from the Yangtze River but also other smaller rivers (Gong et al. 1996) as well as from China coastal water (CCW), Kuroshio water (KW), Kuroshio branch water (KBW), and South China Sea water (SCSW) (Jan 1995, Tseng et al. 2000, Jan et al. 2002).
