The problems of sea ecological monitoring are discussed. It's established that identical operative estimations of a situation in coastal regions can be made with the aid of in situ measuring of total (integral) ecological parameters. The examples of such estimations are given. Peculiarities of remote sensing applications in colored and turbid waters are examined.
