Abstract
    The exchanges of ammonium and nitrates across the sediment-water interface and their interstitial water concentrations were measured in an oyster bed of the Penze River (North Britanny, France) from August 1983 to March 1984. At the end of the summer, the accumulation of ammonium and nitrates is related with an input of organic matter resulting from oyster's biodeposition. Ammonium is mainly released into the water column. During autumn, the accumulation and the fluxes of ammonium decrease; nitrates are taken up by the sediment. In winter, both nitrates and ammonium are absorbed, but only ammonium is regenerated in the sediment. The exchanges across the sediment-water interface do not always follow the molecular gradient, as some uptake and transformation mechanisms can modify the direction and the intensity of the exchanges.
