Nitrifying activity measurements, carried out on freshly collected samples from an estuarine environment, show that the composition of the nitrifier population undergoes a progressive modification during the mixing of freshwater masses in seawater, with increasing tolerance to salt. As a result, the overall effect of increasing salinity on nitrification is much less severe than the direct effect of salt on the freshwater nitrifying population.
