From 1996 to 1999 heterotrophic bacteria of the brackish-water Lake Shira (Republic of Khakasia, Russia) were studied to understand the seasonal dynamics of their antibiotic resistance. During the winter, these bacteria were represented primarily by forms that could not be cultured and were psychrotolerant. In the summer period, heterotrophic, mesophilic bacteria increased in number. The percentages of isolates with multiple, antibiotic resistance isolated from the lake region near the resort area of the lake were 2-3 times higher than those from the central part of the lake. A decline in the bacterial numbers with multiple antibiotic resistance was observed during the cold period (February-March). Various mechanisms of multiple, antibiotic resistance of heterotrophic bacteria isolated from Shira lake are discussed.
