The ecological status of the East Hammar marsh was evaluated by using a number of ecological guides: water quality index (WQI), Carlson trophic state index (TSI) and fish integrated biological index (F-IBI) during the period from November 2012 to October 2013. The results revealed that the annual value of WQI varied from 51.1 (marginal) for historical data before desiccation to 67.8 (fair) for data after inundation. The marsh was evaluated to be mesotrophic (TSI= 42.0). IBI scores weredoi:10.4197/mar.26-2.2 fatcat:vykafibcffdxro2xi3p3zqbnn4
