Short summary
We found that nitrogen fixation can proceed at high rates, depending on the season, in the temperate coastal region of the northwestern North Pacific. nifH sequences were omnipresent and recovered throughout the year. UCYN-A was a major diazotroph during summer, whereas Trichodesmium was abundant during fall, despite low temperatures. The Cluster III diazotrophs, putative anaerobic bacteria, were found at the surface throughout the year.
