Although this study concentrated on culturable Bacteriovorax that infected V parahaemolyticus and hence may be referred to as Vibrio predatory bacteria [6], it would be expected that the Bacteriovorax likely preyed on many other Gram-negative bacteria outside the Vibrionaceae family, particularly when Vibrio levels were low.
