We study the content of Phosphorus, spatial distribution, influencing factors and the ecotoxicity in the sediment of the Bohai Sea and its adjacent area the north Yellow Sea .The results indicate that the content of total phosphorus in the study area ranges from 0.2962mg/g to 0.5422mg/g, and its spatial distribution shows that the content of total phosphorus (P) decreases from the Bohai Sea to its adjacent sea area. The results of the correlation between the total phosphorus with organic carbon and particle size of sediments show that there is a slight correlation between total phosphorus and organic carbon in the study area, the content of total phosphorus is positively correlated with the percentage of particle size in the range of 0.008mm-0.004mm.The study find that total phosphorus (TP) and organic carbon (TOC) in the sediments of Bohai Sea and its adjacent sea area do not cause toxic effect to the benthic environment.
