This study discussed the presence of Salmonella spp and Vibrio cholera in bivalves and water samples obtained from selected area in Kampung Melaban, a river near the External Lab UNIMAS and local hawkers. The samples were analyzed using Thiosulphate Citrate Bile Salt (TCBS) agar and Xylose Lysine Deoxycholate (XLD) agar. This was followed by using commercial Identification System kit (API) for Vibrio cholera and Triple Sugar Iron (TSI) agar for Salmonella spp. This study also compared water quality from the selected area stated above with the Interim National Water Quality Standard (INWQS). The quality of the seafood was then compared with International Commision on Microbiological Specifications for Food (ICMSF) standard. From the Standard Plate Count (SPC) method, 36.66% (n=11) of samples indicate positive for the presence of Salmonella spp while 9.09% (n=11) of samples indicate presence of Vibrio cholera. The collected water samples were in Class III standard in accordance with INWQS which were calculated with 2.5 x 104 cfu/ml. Based on ICMSF, the clams and cockles are fit for human consumption. As conclusion, constant monitoring is essential in order to reduce the risk of pathogenic bacteria contamination in bivalves.
