Abstract: As part of the biodegradation of the phenolic compounds, a microbiological survey was conducted in the Kadinamkulam estuary during 2003. The aim of this study was to screen the bacterial population and to elucidate their plasmid profile in the context of coconut husk retting. Species of Pseudomonas, Escherichia, Enterobacter, Micrococcus, Shigella, Salmonella, and Klebsiella were found to be present in the area. Of these the most dominant species was Pseudomonas. The study was also planned to delineate the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern prevalent in the area. Of the various antibiotics tested, only gentamycin and ofloxacin were found to be sensitive to all the bacterial strains. During the present study nineteen isolates showed the presence of plasmids of varying sizes as their extrachromosomal genetic material.
