Abstract: Distribution of Escherichia coli, faecal streptococci, Salmonella and Vibrio cholerae at Neendakara, Vizhinjam and Koottapalli (Cape Comorin) during January 1986-January 1987 indicates that dispersion and disappearance of enteric bacteria in these environments are very conspicuous. However their residence time in the marine environments from where these samples were collected during the monsoon season is very high. This is evidenced by their presence in the brown mussel Perna indica collected from the mussel beds of the above locations. Salmonella spp. and V. cholerae 01 are totally absent during the study period, but V. cholerae non 01 is observed in some of the mussel samples collected.
