Palk strait estuarine water was highly polluted by Cu, Fe, Pb, Zn and Hg. The study was carryout the interactions between heavy metals and microorganisms. The study area paying attention on the role of probiotic bacteria such as Bacillus cereus, Aeromonas hydrophila, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Azotobacter vinelandii, and Lactobacillus sp. to remove the metals from polluted nine aquaculture ponds through the way of bioremediation, bioaccumulation and mineralization process. The highest inhibition zone was absorbed in Pseudomonas aeruginosa against Hg (3.796 mm) and Cu (0.060 mm), Aeromonas hydrophila against Pb (5.526 mm) and Bacillus cereus against Zn (4.504 mm) and Fe (1.635 mm). No inhibition zone was produced by Azotobacter beijerinckii and control also maintained.
