The deep basin water of Resurrection Bay (a simple-silled fjord at 60 N on the South central Alaskan coast) is renewed each summer with water having a dissolved oxygen concentration > 4 ml/l. Prior to 1976 more than 90 % of the allochtonous organic carbon supply to the basin was from fish-processing waste. The relatively high flux of allochtonous carbon into Boca de Quadra appears to consist predominantly of refractory material which does not create a significant oxygen demand within the basin.
