Abstract: Levels of lactate and acetate oxidising sulfate reducing bacteria in sediment samples of mangrove swamps were in the order of 103 g-1 dry sediment and the counts decreased with depth. Lactate utilisers were generally higher in number than acetate utilizers. Of the 20 strains studied from lactate based medium and 21 from acetate based medium 20 and 47.6U+0025 respectively were spore formers. The strains were all mesophilic and euryhaline (0-40 x 10-3). About 60U+0025 of the former grew on acetate while 71.4U+0025 of the latter grew strictly on format. The strains were all Gram negative and cytochrome-C positive.
