Short summary
The Southwest Pacific has one of the highest N2 fixation rates in the global ocean, yet information is scarce on the bacterioplankton interrelationships. We detected high microbial diversity in the New Caledonia lagoon and inside a 50 000 L experimental enclosure of the same water mass over 3 weeks and give evidence for previously unknown niche partitioning. Phosphate fertilization promoted the growth of efficient N2 fixing cyanobacteria triggering the growth of most heterotrophic bacteria.
