Abstract We study the population galaxies in groups along the Coma- Abell 1367 supercluster to study the occurrence of Seyfert galaxies. Within this population, we identified 5% of the galaxies as Seyferts and found that 40% of the groups contain at least one Seyfert. Only a small fraction of groups contain more than one Seyfert. We report on the distribution of Seyfert galaxies as a function of environment across the supercluster and probe the characteristics of the population of groups that currently host at least one Seyfert. In particular we correlate the properties of the population of Seyferts galaxies with the HI content of groups as derived in the ALFALFA survey.
