Abstract: This paper constitutes the first cyst record of a eutrophic tropical mariculture area with harmful algal blooms since 2002 and provides contribution to the global record on dinoflagellate cysts, specifically from Northern part of Southeast Asia. Surface sediment samples from 54 stations in October 2006 and 5 stations from 2004 to 2006 Bolinao, Pangasinan were processed palynologically and by fluorescent techniques. Exploratory data analysis using Two-Way Indicator Species Analysis (TWINSPAN) to identify major patterns of distribution and Canonical Correspondence Analysis (CCA) ordinated stations and species along sediment and environmental variables have been done to determine spatial variations in community structure. Thirty-six cyst types have been identified which include the toxic species, Alexandrium minutum. Species richness and diversity correlated with silt, mud, carbonates and depth but have been observed to be generally low in the area (p
