Salt tolerance ability of coliform bacteria in Hooghly estuary, West Bengal, India

Subhajit Das

Population of total coliform and fecal coliform bacteria was monitored both spatially and seasonally from the Hooghly estuarine

water for assessing their salt tolerance ability. The coliform bacteria isolated were allowed to grow in different saline medium and our

study revealed that both total and fecal coliform bacteria could tolerate maximum salinity of 30 psu. Physicochemical parameters of

estuarine water showed a significant control over the population of coliform bacteria. Human activity, rather than monsoonal cycle,

was found to be more effective parameter to control population of coliform bacteria in the Hooghly estuarine water of West Bengal,
