This paper deals with the discharge in saline solution (0.9 % NaCl) in coaxial electrode system at voltages up to several hundred volts. The discharge was powered by bipolar pulsed generator with a pulse repetition rate of 100 kHz and by a generator of negative voltage pulses. At voltages less than a threshold value (less than 300 V)' different types of gas microcavities are formed at the surface of active electrode: the microbubble' the conglomerates of microbubbles (thin gas layers) and a macrobubble with diameter of about 1 mm and less. In a vicinity of threshold voltage the breakdown in the gas cavities occur. For negative polarity at the metal electrode the discharge burns in a form of microsparks of short duration. At positive voltage pulses' the glow-type discharge is sustained in the microcavities.
