Several aspects of bacterial glucose assimilation and bacterial production (BP) were investigated over 2 d in the upper 300 m of the Gulf of Mexico. Glucose concentrations ranged from 2 to 15 nM in surface seawater; glucose utilization rates were 1–3 nM d21 in the upper 150 m of the water column and 0.02–0.8 nM d21 in deeper water (150–300 m). Turnover of glucose and bacteria were similar and were in the range of 0.01–0.4 d21. Measured glucose assimilation rates imply that glucose supports ;5… CONTINUE READING
