Abstract:

The present study was conducted in order to monitor the total heterotropic bacteria present at different Days of Culture (DOC). The presence of specific human pathogenic species of Vibrio serve as an indicator of public health safety of water and food destined for human consumption. So an assessment of Vibrio sp. was conducted in order to evaluate the nature of the pond. THB load in sediments showed its peak of 2.3 X 107 CFU/g at 150th DOC and low of 8.9 X 107 CFU/g at 25th DOC. The Vibrio cholerae populations in the sediment high 2.3 X 107 CFU/g at 150th DOC and low in 1.9 X 107 CFU/g at 25th DOC. Vibrio parahaemolyticus in sediments was high (5.5 X 107 CFU/gm) at 150th DOC and low (1.3 X 107 CFU/g) at 25th DOC. However, turbidity plays a major role in the distribution of bacterial population in pond water due to heavy organic matter.
