This study monitored bacteria at Cabrillo Beach (California, U.S.) for three years in order to determine the natural and anthropogenic sources of fecal indicator bacteria after the area did not meet its TMDL goals despite attempted management. The results indicated that gulls substantially contributed to the exceedence of the TMDL goals.
