A series of laboratory experiments were conducted at Pensacola, Florida to determine the rate of accumulation of bacteria by the eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica. These studies involved the determination of the coliform level attained by oysters in laboratory flats furnished flowing sea water artificially polluted by the continuous addition of suspensions of coliform organisms. The tests were conducted simultaneously at two levels of bacterial density of the water, which correspond to the coliform MPN limits set for moderately polluted and approved shellfish growing areas. A third flat, furnished with coliform-free sea water, was included as a control.
