Vibrio parahaemolyticus was grown at 36 C in tryptic soy broth (pH 7.8) containing added levels of NaCl ranging from 0.5 to 7.9% (wt/wt). The fastest generation time was 16.4 min in tryptic soy broth containing 2.9% NaCl (TSBS) which corresponded to a water activity (a(w)) of 0.992 (+/-0.005). Tryptic soy broth containing lower or higher levels of NaCl… CONTINUE READING
