Abiotic parameters in Tunis Southern Lagoon after an environmental restoration and status of macrobenthic biocenosis (northern Tunisia, central Mediterranean Sea)

Tunis Southern Lagoon was previously polluted by anthropogenic activities which needed a thorough environmental restoration, achieved during September 2001. The aim of the work is to reveal the positive changes of the abiotic parameters and their role on the biodiversity of the lagoon. Ecological measures carried out during a 24-months period (from October 2014 to September 2016) at 3 fixed stations, showed an improvement in water quality, confirming the positive impact of the restoration project. An overview of the macrobenthic biocenosis evolution is also discussed in the present work.
