What kinds of dangerous bacteria are there in the ocean?

    There are a ridiculously large number of bacteria in the ocean. Every mile or so of the ocean contains different bacteria from the next. There is one slightly common bacteria called Vibrio vulnificus, which thrives in warm water and will infect the open wounds of a person wading in the sea. It has killed 31 people in the last 4 years. Another study found that 1/3 of ocean swimmers were exposed to a staph bacteria which is also dangerous. The ocean does contain dangerous bacteria but you may or may not actually run into them yourself.
