Microbes and their use as Indicators of Pollution

Two thirds of the Earth is covered by water and about 99.7% of water found on this planet is contained in the oceans and seas.Marine ecosystems are an important resource not only for the extraordinary variety of life they host but also for the multiple activities that occur in them (i.e. recreational and productive activities like tourism, aquaculture and fisheries; maritime shipping and traffic; exploitation of energy resources like oil and gas extraction; pipelines and submarine cables location; uses for military activities, and others). The anthropic impacts on the marine environment are particularly evident in coastal areas, which are the most vulnerable to pressures [1], and are exposed to urban, agriculture runoff and industrial discharges - with their load of organic and inorganic particles, xenobiotics and other contaminants, oil spill, heavy metals, etc - with consequent impairment of water quality and alterations of ecosystem functioning.
