Short summary
The role of N and P released by copepods on biogeochemical cycles and the microbial community during the OUTPACE cruise was studied. In the presence of copepods, NH4+ and DON increase, and an enhanced remineralization was observed. A shift in active bacterial composition was observed, linked with changes in nutrient concentrations. Copepods can be a source of (in)organic compounds for bacterial communities that contribute to nutrient recycling and regenerated production in the photic zone.
