Pelagic and benthic primary production and respiration were measured in a shallow, eutrophic lake to examine the role of the pelagic zone and the sediments in the overall carbon budget of the lake. The pelagic zone of the lake was net autotrophic. When the sediment primary production and respiration were taken into account both processes were balanced.
