The bacterial secondary production was measured at 6 sites of Lake Soyang in October, 1989 by $^{3}$H-thymidine incorporation rate. Verfication for the method of bacterial secondary production measurement showed that $^{3}$H-thymidine incorporated into DNA, RNA and protein by average percentage of 38.45, 42.27 and 20.07%, respectively. THe more increased incoporated $^{3}$H-thymidine, the more increasde DNA fraction, but protein fraction was generally low. Incorporation of rate of /usp 3/H-thymidine. $^{3}$H-leucine into protein correlated with protein fraction of incorporated $^{3}$H-thymidine. Conversion factors were calculated as follows; $1.83*10 ^{20}$ cells/moles of thymidine incorporated/hr and 1.69*10$^{22}$ cells/moles of leucine incorporated/hr.
