Abstract The amount of phytoplankton in the aquatic ecosystems can be described as chlorophyll concentration. The measurements of chlorophyll content of the algae populations have been done since the early 1960’s using fluorescence emission around 685 nm. In the last two decades researches on the fluorometric differentiation of algal population based on energy transfer and fluorescence emission for rapis in situ estimation of individual algal groups have been carried out in Europe. Based on spectral evaluation of phytoplankton during 2008-2013, the variability of phytoplankton population in terms of chlorophyll content and cyanobacteria biomass, the risk for modification of phytoplankton populations and the degree similarity between some lakes of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve have been established.
