Abstract

Primary production in the oceans results from allochthonous nutrient inputs ot the euphotic zone (new production) and from nutrient recycling in the surface waters (regenerated production). Global new production is of the order of 3.4-4.710 tons of carbon per year and approximates the sinking flux of particulate organic matter to the deep ocean.
