Abstract/Summary

The use of petroleum and other oil products causes severe oil spills and damages to our aquatic environment. This study involved the isolation and screening of oil-degrading bacteria from sea water polluted with oil products. A docking area in Manila Bay was the chosen study site. Samples from six sites were plated in oil salts medium. All water samples yielded negative results for oil-degrading microorganisms.
