Phytoplankton crops in Saanich Inlet were characterized by their content of photosynthetic pigments and by their taxonomic compositions from early April to mid-December, 1981. Crop sizes were correlated to particle volumes, bacterial activities, and oxygen concentrations at all depths to test the hypothesis that the degradation of sinking phytoplankton debris by bacterial production results in anoxia.
