The digestive tract of fish is colonized by a great number of heterotrophic bacteria. Reported numbers of viable aerobic and anaerobic bacteria range between 10 and 10 and 6.6 ¥ 10-1.6 ¥ 10 CFU g-1, respectively. Consequently, it is widely accepted that fish intestines provide favorable ecologic niches for various taxa of microflora. Resident intestinal(More)
Gram-negative-staining bacteria that were resistant to monoterpene myrcene (7-methyl-3-methylene-1.6-octadiene, C10H16, at concentrations of up to 10 µl ml(-1) in TSB) were isolated from the gut contents of adult bark beetles Ips typographus (Coleoptera, Scolytidae). The beetles were collected from the bark of Norway spruce (Picea abies) in Lithuania. Bark(More)
The microbial diversity of the intestinal tract content of the river trout from two Lithuanian rivers has been investigated by molecular methods: polymerase chain reaction amplification and sequencing of partial 16S rRNA genes. Predominant bacterial populations detected in the river trout intestinal tract from the Skorblus River were Rahnella (21%), from(More)
The microbial diversity of culturable intestinal microflora of wild freshwater salmonid fishes salmon Salmo salar and sea trout Salmo trutta trutta juveniles (0+ years old) from the same environmental conditions were investigated by means of molecular identification techniques and analysis of diet. Significant differences in the intestinal microbial(More)
The investigation was carried out to ascertain the cause of mass mortalities in European perch (Perca fluviatilis L.) in North Lithuanian rivers in 2008 that reached a maximum in mid-autumn at a water temperature of 6°C. Marked changes were detected in morphophysiological parameters (spleen-, gill-, liver- and heart-somatic indices), which corresponded to(More)
Experimental studies of infection transmission via water from infected to healthy fish were conducted. The dark-brown bacterial colonies typical for Aeromonas salmonicida on tryptone soya agar (TSA) have been isolated and counted (from 3.0±0.6×102 to 3.5±0.5×105 c.f.u. g−1) from the internal organs of naturally infected (NI) and experimentally infected (EI)(More)
