Enterotoxicity ofVibrio furnissii isolated from eels.


Fourteen strains ofVibrio furnissii, isolated from different ulcerated areas of eel, were tested to check their enterotoxicity in an animal model. Most strains caused fluid accumulation in ileal loop tests after serial passages and culture filtrates of most of the strains caused induration and increase in vascular permeability in rabbit skin. Production of extracellular haemolysin was also detected in all the culture filtrates. All of these observations clearly establish the enterotoxicity of these organisms.
