The composition and biomass of aquatic plants have been investigated near several settlements at the upper reaches of the Yenisei River: from Krasnoyarsk city to the Angara River mouth. Submerged aquatic plants mainly represented the aquatic flora. The phytomass consisted mostly of plants from the deep-water zone of the river. The mean biomass of plants in the deep-water zone was 410 g/m2, the impact of Potamogeton species in the deep-water biomass was 64-100 %. P.lucens dominated at the majority of deep-water sites (53-98 % in terms of dry biomass)
