Microbial population changes were monitored immediately after the Nakhodka oil spill accident in January 1997 at the heavily oil-contaminated Mikuni coast along the Sea of Japan. The total cell number was almost stable for one year at 2–5 × 105 cells mL−1, while the relative occurrence of culturable heterotrophs and degraders of oil components such as C-heavy oil, kerosene, and n-tetradecane varied, showing a maximum (>50% of the total) immediately following the accident. Gene amplification and… CONTINUE READING
