Variations in dissolved free and combined carbohydrates during a phytoplankton bloom in the northern North Sea were investigated. Large amounts of carbohydrates are released into seawater during the bloom; the major portion of this release occurs towards the end of the bloom. A considerable part of the released carbohydrates is in the combined form. Free dissolved carbohydrates are formed mainly by in situ hydrolysis of dissolved combined carbohydrates. Glucose and fructose dominate the free… CONTINUE READING
