Methods for assessing the quality of the marine environment, in particular, an analysis of macrobenthos species larval settlement in reservoirs. The emergence of young animals indicates the high quality of the environment: water and soil, as the embryos and larvae of invertebrates can survive in clean water and settle down only after you have selected a suitable and clean substrate for settling.
