The structure and diversity of the autotrophic link of the Kardashyn liman of the Dnieper-Bug estuary and the distribution of energy fluxes in this water body are discussed in the paper. The role of phytoplankton, higher aquatic plants, and phytoepiphyton in the biotic balance of two subsystems, including the natural Kardashyn liman and the artificial sand quarry, were analyzed. The liman and sand quarry significantly differ in the complex of ecological factors, including their morphological and hydrochemical characteristics, and also temperature and light conditions, which influences the autotrophic link of each subsystem. In the liman, the communities of algae and higher aquatic plants are more diverse in their species composition than those in the sand quarry. Phytoplankton and higher aquatic plants prevail in the biotic balance of the liman, whereas phytoplankton − in the biotic balance of the sand quarry.
