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… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Bacterial and parasite co-infection in Mexican golden trout (Oncorhynchus chrysogaster) by Aeromonas bestiarum, Aeromonas sobria, Plesiomonas shigelloides and Ichthyobodo necator

Resistance to β -lactams suggests the acquisition of genetic determinants from water contamination by human- or livestock-associated activities.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 major

Hatchery tanks induce intense reduction in microbiota diversity associated with gills and guts of two endemic species of the São Francisco River

It is concluded that the conditions imposed on fish in the HT act as important modulators of microbial diversity in the analyzed tissues, and raises questions regarding the effects of these conditions on hatchery spawn fish and their suitability for restocking activities, aggravated by the narrow genetic diversity associated with such freshwater systems.



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.

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.

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.

Interactions between fish larvae and bacteria in marine aquaculture

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.

Environmental and ecological factors that shape the gut bacterial communities of fish: a meta‐analysis

The results indicate that fish harbour more specialized gut communities than previously recognized, and highlight a trend of convergent acquisition of similar bacterial communities by fish and mammals, raising the possibility that fish were the first to evolve symbioses resembling those found among extant gut fermenting mammals.
