The bacterial flora in the digestive tube of Bullacta exarata Philippi and its rearing shoal were investigated. A total of 157 strains of heterotrophic bacteria, isolated from crop, stomach intestine and other parts of the digestive tube, mainly belong to the genera Photobacterium, Bacillus, Pseudomonas Vibrio and some genera of the family Enterobacteriaceae. There are significantly more varieties of bacteria in crop than in stomach and intestine. A total of 173 strains of bacteria were… Expand


Studies on the chemical control of a Vibrio campbellii-like bacterium affecting hatchery-reared Penaeus indicus larvae
The optimum exposure time to chloramphenicol for protozoeae and myses to recover from infection caused by the V. campbellii-like bacterium was determined. Expand
Pathogenicity of Vibrio parahaemolyticus in tiger prawn Penaeus monodon Fabricius: possible role of extracellular proteases
Tiger prawns were experimentally challenged with a virulent strain of Vibrio parahaemolyticus 25C, originally isolated from Penaeus orientalis in an outbreak of red leg disease at a shrimp farm in the People's Republic of China, and both fractions were found toxic to tigers, but heat-inactivated fractions were not toxic.

Vibrio species associated with mortalities in hatchery-reared turbot (Colistium nudipinnis) and brill (C. guntheri) in New Zealand.
It appears that the mortalities of juvenile turbot Colistium nudipinnis and brill were due to infection by opportunist bacteria in fish predisposed by a combination of adverse factors including an acute period of poor water quality and perhaps an inadequate diet. Expand
Vibriosis: Pathogenicity and pathology. A review
This work has shown that Vibriosis is a term for a group of well known fish diseases reported from a large number of marine fish species, and that several new fish pathogens belonging to this genus have been described during the last few years. Expand
Improvement and update of a set of keys for biochemical identification of Vibrio species
Two biochemical keys for fast and presumptive identification of certain Vibrio species are presented, a new improved version of a set of keys previously described, which were specially designed for environmental and clinical isolates. Expand
A set of keys for biochemical identification of environmental Vibrio species.
A set of biochemical keys which provide fast and presumptive identification for Vibrio spp. is presented. They have been specially designed for environmental isolates, and can be used for strainsExpand
Taxonomic scheme for the identification of marine bacteria
A recently developed taxonomic scheme for the identification of marine bacteria is presented. The scheme is based on numerous reviews and monographs on marine bacteria, as well as Bergey's Manual ofExpand
Stress and Stress-Induced Neuroendocrine Changes Increase the Susceptibility of Juvenile Oysters (Crassostrea gigas) to Vibrio splendidus
The results suggest that the physiological changes imposed by stress, or stress hormones, influenced host-pathogen interactions in oysters and increased juvenile C. gigasvulnerability to Vibrio splendidus. Expand
