Summary form only given. The development of general-purpose practical methods of oil pollution (OP) monitoring in marine media are needed. Its importance is obvious in coastal marine water areas. At the same time, the difficulties of solving such problem grow dramatically for such water areas because of simultaneous influence of many factors that are insignificant for open sea waters. Information about OP concentration is extracted from the fluorescence spectrum under UV excitation. The main obstacle on the way to obtaining this information is the wide fluorescence band of aquatic substances and protein-like compounds.
