Abstract
The effects of the anthropogenic process on the trophic status of the Caete estuary (located 150 km southwest of the Amazon delta) were undertaken under different climate conditions. To do this, oceanographic data were carried out, covering the dry season of 2010 (August-December: rainfall 363 mm), and the wet (January July, rainfall 2483 mm) and dry seasons of 2011 (August-October, rainfall 135 mm). During the dry season (2010 and 2011) the mean discharge of the Caete River was less than 20.0 m...
