As with their terrestrial counterparts, marine mammals are colonized by a range of bacteria, some of which are friendly and others which can cause disease. The bacteria from cetaceans and seals however are poorly documented in contrast to most land-based species. Researchers have now studied in detail the gram negative bacteria recovered from marine mammals and found that some of those recovered have significance beyond the host animals from which they were recovered.
