abundance in inshore waters, particularly in or near large harbors.
A man named Nishil studied the relationship between the chloride content
of sea water and the seasonal distribution of V. parahaemolyticus
10 and concluded that while the isolation of V. parahaemolyticus was
independent of the sodium chloride content, the distribution of V.
parahaevolyticus in sea water was dependent on the water temperature.
In fact it has been isolated in high frequencies during summer, from
June to September, but was not isolated with the same frequency in
