  • SummaryThe growth profile and hydrocarbonoclastic potential of microorganisms isolated from tarballs harvested from Ibeno beach in the Bight of Bonny were examined to determine their role in the degradation of the aquatic pollutants (tarballs). The results of the analysis revealed that the mean heterotrophic bacterial count ranged from 3 (±0.01) × 103 to 3.18 (±0.2) × 105 c.f.u./g. The mycological count ranged from 1 (±0.3) × 102 to 2 (±0.4) × 104 c.f.u./g while the mean count of biodegraders… CONTINUE READING
