Microbiological analysis of samples of sea water collected off the coast of Bombay resulted in the isolation of over 80 yeasts by the enrichment culture methodology. A study of 74 strains indicated the preponderance of asporogenous over the sporogenous yeasts in the sea. The species Candida tropicalis probably occurs in the sea at all times and the other species belonging to the genera Saccharomyces, Debaryomyces, Torulopsis, Cryptococcus, Rhodotorula and Trichosporon have also been suggested as of marine origin.
