Abstract
Estuarine waters are usually eutrophic due to nutrients input derived from natural and anthropogenic sources. In the Caete Estuary, nutrients and thermotolerant coliforms input is intensified by the absence of a public sanitation system and by mangrove outwelling. This input is more accentuated in the upper sector of the estuary where 90% of the local population is concentrated and a high incidence of commercial activities (public markets, ice factories and boat repairing among others) is locate...
