A phage recovery technique is described that is shown to be easy to perform and sensitive. It is efficient in detecting somatic coliphages in mussels artificially contaminated, even at very low levels. Good results are also reported for detection and enumeration of naturally occurring coliphages in mussels and cockles from the French Atlantic coast.
