 A large number of bacteria, including agents responsible for diseases, characterise sewage-pollutedseawaters. Apart from standards for bathing waters and bivalve aquaculture waters, there are no generalmicrobiological standards applicable to seawaters to help decide if bacterial pollution is within acceptableranges. This study represents an attempt towards the issue of comparing the susceptibility of differentmarine invertebrates subjected to polluted seawater with a high microbial contamination. We explored thesurvival rates and the microbiological accumulation of mollusc bivalves, echinoderms and crustaceansspecies exposed to sewage-polluted seawaters. Microbiological analyses were performed on the pollutedseawater and on the homogenates of exposed and unexposed specimens. Culturable bacteria (22 °C and37 °C) and microbial pollution indicators (total coliforms, Escherichia coli and intestinal enterococci) weremeasured. When exposed to the sewage-polluted seawater, the examined invertebrates showed differentsurvival rates. In the filter feeders, bacterial densities at 22 °C and 37 °C rose after 96 h of exposure to
sewage. The highest concentrations of total coliforms and intestinal enterococci were found in exposedbivalve Mytilus galloprovincialis. The concentrations of bacteria growing at 37 °C were lower in theexposed deposit feeders compared to the polluted seawater. Some yeasts were absent in severalexposed species although these yeasts were present in the polluted seawater. Our data suggest that theexamined filter feeders, given their capability to survive and accumulate bacteria, may counteract theeffects of sewage and restore seawater quality. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
