Bacterial numbers and taxonomic types were found to be the same in the oil field as in the control area. No difference in bacterial diversity or biomass was noted between stations but a change did occur between seasonal samples. Members of the genera Vibrio, Pseudomonas, Aeromonas and Acinetobacter were found to predominate in the sediment and fish samples. The bacterial population of the oil field sites contained more oil degrading and sulfur oxidizing bacteria than the control site.
