This paper deals, on the one hand, with a study of bacteriological parameters of coastal water in the region of Tangier Ksar-Sghir, north of Morocco, and secondly, with an examination of the influence of temperature parameter on biological processes occurring within seawater. The bacteriological study concerns E. coli, fecal coliforms (F.C), total coliforms (T.C) and fecal streptococcus (F.S). A campaign of 25 sampling points spread over four layers of concentration was conducted in the coastal line during the year of 2017 and The overall results of tests were obtained using the Principal Component Analysis method. (PCA). The analysis has highlighted differentiated areas in term of sanitary quality. The highest values obtained were in the zone of Tangier-Med port showing high fecal contamination by pollution indicator bacteria (T.C, F.C, E. coli and F.S) with high temperature values that result in short-, medium- and long-term environmental pollution.
