Water testing question

     We recently pulled water samples near Bayonne, NJ and found plenty
of algae but no motile life forms (protozoans, nematodes, aquatic
insects, etc.). Two questions:
1) Any ideas on what conditions would lead to this this observation?

2) Any ideas on water testing methods (for salinity, Po4, NH3, etc.)
that would help with the mystery?

3) Any ideas on where to get info. for 1) and 2).

Thank you for your help. You can e-mail me directly at the address
