Abstract
    As part of an extensive ecosystem study, the fate of the bacterioplankton community was followed in the tidal Oostershelde basin and in the stagnant but saline Lake Grevelingen, The Netherlands. At regular intervals, bacterioplankton biomass, percentages of bacteria attached to particles, bacterioplankton productivity and oxygen consumption rates, together with a number of environmental parameters, were determined. With respect to biomass, productivity and oxygen consumption rates, no significant differences were observed between the two coastal basins. However, the mean percentages of attached bacteria were high in the tidal Oosterschelde basin compared to the stagnant Lake Grevelingen.
