Short summary
The VAHINE experiment in the New Caledonia lagoon (SW Pacific) targeted the dynamics of nutrient pools and fluxes, N2 fixation, and the composition and productivity of the microbial communities. To connect this information to the actual activities of diverse microbial taxa, we present the analysis of the community-wide gene expression for 23 days. The results from this experiment provide insight into the microbial activities in a low-nutrient, low-chlorophyll ecosystem and within a mesocosm.
