Despite the significant development on their diagnoses and control, aeromonad infection is still a problem in aquaculture. This study described the key bacteriological and pathogenic features of a presumptive Aeromonas sp. isolated from the liver of a diseased guppy (Poecilia reticulata). Molecular identification revealed that the isolate was an Aeromonas veronii (A. veronii PR). It was able to grow in a wide range of temperatures and salt concentrations, and was capable of auto-aggregation and… CONTINUE READING
