Water Reserve, despite the proximity of a large port city and the pollution of the Amur Bay, amaze with high transparency and purity, reaching a maximum at about. Big Peilz. It is likely that the pure water in the area - a consequence of the water cycle around the archipelago of Rimsky-Korsakov, and pushed pollution to other parts of the Gulf.
As a result of a combination of different types of currents in the bays and islands there is a very complex hydrological conditions: strong and steady flow with a moving surface and deeper waters, cycles, and some semi-enclosed bays slight movement of water in the summer leads to delamination water with large differences in temperature at the surface and at the bottom. Marked here and upwellings - upwelling to the surface of the sea. Along with cold Seaside currents running from north to south, in Peter the Great Bay recorded circular flow, for example, around the islands of Rimsky-Korsakov and Askold and warm current that comes from the south of the Korean Peninsula. This coastal current is constantly enters from the south of Primorye for new species that are sometimes successfully acclimatized.
