The distribution of Staphylococcus aureus and Listeria monocytogenes in the sea water and marine organisms of Peter the Great and Nha Trang bays, the phenotypic properties and antibiotic sensitivity of the isolates were studied. S. aureus was recorded from 9.3% samples in the Sea of Japan and from 20.4% samples in the South China Sea, L. monocytogenes respectively from 5.9 % and 5.8 % samples. S. aureus and L. monocytogenes found in the tropics differed in their phenotypic properties from those found in the temperate zone. Antibiotic resistance was detected in 81.8% and 71.8% of S. aureus strains and in 19% and 71.4% of L. monocytogenes strains respectively from Peter the Great Bay and from Vietnam. The results show that multiresistant strains of S. aureus and L. monocytogenes are widespread throughout Peter the Great and Nha Trang bays and present a hazard to the health of humans and marine animals.
