The Gram-negative intestinal microbiota of Hypostomus auroguttatus and Pimelodus maculatus, a detritivorous and an omnivorous fish species, respectively, were compared between fishes from the reservoir and the stretch of the river below the dam of the Funil hydroelectric plant, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Four selective culture media were used under aerobic and two under anaerobic conditions. The omnivorous species had microbiota with higher population levels compared to the detritivorous species… Expand
Prevalence and distribution of pathogenic bacteria found in fish and fishery products: A review
Fishes are among one of the major sources of food for many counties globally and a vital source of protein. Fishes are known to be carriers and vectors of pathogenic bacteria that are of majorExpand
Identification and pathogenicity of Plesiomonas shigelloides in Silver Carp
The pathology and pathogenesis studies of this pathogen in inland open waters like wetlands and lakes would help in management of the outbreak of disease in these aquatic ecosystems. Expand
Post harvest bacterial load in the gut of Ompok pabda (Hamilton, 1822) from two fish markets of Brahmanbaria
The findings of this study indicated that the fish collected from the local fish markets were contaminated with different pathogenic bacteria that reflect the unhygienic conditions of the markets. Expand
Plesiomonas shigelloides Revisited
For years, recognizable virulence factors potentially associated with P. shigelloides pathogenicity were lacking; however, several good candidates now have been reported, including a cytotoxic hemolysin, iron acquisition systems, and lipopolysaccharide. Expand
Tetrodotoxin-Producing Bacteria: Detection, Distribution and Migration of the Toxin in Aquatic Systems
This review is devoted to the marine bacterial producers of tetrodotoxin (TTX), a potent non-protein neuroparalytic toxin, and examines issues relating to toxin migration from bacteria to TTX-bearing animals. Expand
Enzymatic digestion of stomachless fish Zenarchopterus buffonis
Investigating the activity of four digestive enzymes along the gut of halfbeaks to determine how they digest their diets as opportunistic omnivores found that the αamylase shows the highest enzymatic activity, followed by lipase and relatively low activity of protease along the alimentary canal. Expand
Under control: how a dietary additive can restore the gut microbiome and proteomic profile, and improve disease resilience in a marine teleostean fish fed vegetable diets
Insight is given on the pleiotropic effects of a dietary additive on the restoration of intestinal homeostasis and disease resilience, using a multifaceted approach. Expand
Survivorship and walking behavior of Inquilinitermes microcerus (Termitidae: Termitinae) in contact with host workers and walls from host nest
Results showed that I. microcerus adopt behavioral strategies to avoid perception by its host, and these strategies were reduced when workers were in contact with inner and external walls compared with control. Expand


Composition and antagonistic activity of the indigenous intestinal microbiota of Prochilodus argenteus Agassiz
The composition and antibacterial properties of indigenous intestinal microbiota from Prochilodus argenteus were studied during reproductive and alimentary restriction and non-reproductive periods and Gram-positive components of this microbiota showed high antagonistic activity against gram-negative species. Expand
Microbial diversity of intestinal contents and mucus in yellow catfish (Pelteobagrus fulvidraco)
The traditional culture-based techniques and the 16S rDNA sequencing method were used to investigate the microbial community of the intestinal contents and mucosal layer in the intestine of yellow catfish, and the abundance and diversity of bacterial populations in mucus might be different from the microbiota in gut contents. Expand
Volatile fatty acids and anaerobic fermentation in temperate piscivorous and omnivorous freshwater fish
Low levels of intestinal VFA during cool seasons are consistent with the hypothesis that temperature limits fermentation in these Species and suggest fermentation plays a minimal role in the nutrition of this species. Expand
Enzyme production by obligate intestinal anaerobic bacteria isolated from oscars (Astronotus ocellatus), angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare) and southern flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma)
The purpose of this research was to isolate and identify the obligate anaerobic intestinal flora of the freshwater angelfish, oscars and the marine southern flounder and to identify new undescribed taxa. Expand
Influence of the diet on the microbial diversity of faecal and gastrointestinal contents in gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) and intestinal contents in goldfish (Carassius auratus).
There was a trend towards decreasing diversity in goldfish microbiota with the partial substitution by lupin, which seemed to inhibit some taxa, including Bacillales and Flavobacteriaceae. Expand
Presence of lactobacilli in the intestinal content of freshwater fish from a river and from a farm with a recirculation system.
Improved methods for storage and bacteriological analysis of fish intestinal content are described, finding the natural presence of lactic acid bacteria in fish may be of great interest in producing fermented fish products worldwide. Expand
Carbohydrate utilisation by microbial symbionts in the marine herbivorous fishes Odax cyanomelas and Crinodus lophodon
Differences in the transport and metabolism of the different monomers by the microbiota of O. cyanomelas and C. lophodon correlated strongly with predicted monomer availability in the gut of each species, suggesting that the microbiota are an integral component of digestion in these fish. Expand
Interactions between fish larvae and bacteria in marine aquaculture
There is a need for better microbial control during intensive larval production of marine larvae in intensive systems, and the use of probiotics has proven advantageous in domestic animal production, and microbial management may also have a potential in aquaculture. Expand
Influence of season, environment and feeding habits on the enzymatic activity of peptidase and β-glucosidase in the gastrointestinal tract of two Siluriformes fishes (Teleostei)
Findings indicate that, in H. auroguttatus, most digestive activity occurs in the intestine, which is long and adapted for the digestion of bottom-river vegetable matter and detritus, a likely consequence of their different lifestyles. Expand
Changes in microbial communities associated with the conditioning of filter material in recirculating aquaculture systems of the pufferfish Takifugu rubripes
The results demonstrated the importance of effective utilization of nitrifying bacteria in aquaculture, since number of these bacteria did not vary for the duration of the experiment. Expand
