The White Sea Biological Station (WSBS) named by A.N. Pertsov is an educational and research centre under the auspices of the Faculty of Biology of Moscow State University. The station is situated on the Karelian coast of the White Sea. WSBS is an isolated settlement. There is no road and communication with nearest village Poyakonda and the rest of the world is possible by boats in summer time and by snow-mobiles in winter. Summer here is relatively warm with temperature of air about 16 °C on average, temperature of surface water in summer sometime could be about 18–19 °C, but on the depths more than 25 m it is always about zero. Winter is quite cold. The ice covers the White Sea from beginning of December to the first decade of May. License and use of photography
