Abstract: The possibility of contracting diseases from recreational waters is often overlooked. With increasing levels of anthropogenic pollution in Fiji and the Pacific region, the risks of contracting diseases from recreational or occupational exposure to these waters and beaches is an underestimated problem. The studied sites of Suva Lagoon (Nasese, Lami and Kinoya) have all yielded pathogenic bacteria from the lagoonal waters, sand and mussels. The enteric pathogens Salmonella, Shigella spp and Vibrio spp were studied from the different media across the stations over the eight month period. Enterococci, Aeromonas spp and E. coli were also studied in different media across the stations.
