Abstract

This paper embodies the results of bacteriological investigations carried out in the Wadge Bank region of the Indian Ocean during August, 1985. The aerobic heterotrophic bacterial population of the surface waters (0-100 m) ranged from lx 105 / ml to 9.8 x 105 during the peak monsoon season. Bacteria belonged to genera of Pseudomonas, Aeromonas, Vibrio, Alcaligens and Micrococcus. Thc isolates were found to be active decomposers of macromolecules. No significant correlation was observed between the bacterial population and the light intensity at various depths.
