Bacterial production in water samples collected at Station MARCH-1997-GN36199704601MSB07 in the Aegean Sea


Bacterial production was estimated by the 3H-leucine approach (Kirchman, Newell, Hodson, 1986). For each depth duplicate samples and a control were incubated with 1 nM L-[4,5 3H]-leucine (specific activity 128 Ci/mmol in March, 158 Ci/mmol in September) +18 nM non radioactive leucine. Samples were incubated in the dark at in situ temperature. Bacterial production was calculated according to Kirchman (1993) from 3H-leucine incorporation rates.
