Virulence potential and antibiotic susceptibility patterns of motile Aeromonad
associated with fresh water ornamental fish culture systems: A possible threat to public health".
hydrophila promotes the motile aeromonad
septicaemia disease that has prompt uncountable economic losses in marine and freshwater aquaculture (Kesarcodi-Watson et al.
Aeromonas hydrophila is a gram negative, an opportunistic and zoonatically important primary fish pathogen which is the causative agent of bacterial hemorrhagic septicemia (motile aeromonad
septicemia) (Austin and Austin, 1999; Chu and Lu, 2005).
4,8) More than 90% of aeromonad
strains, however, are susceptible to third-generation cephalosporins, aminoglycosides, and fluoroquinolones.
Aeromonas hydrophila and motile aeromonad
septicemias of fish.
We propose using aeromonad
species, specifically A.
Because many clinical laboratories are unable to perform precise identification, many aeromonad
isolates are reported as A.

Antibiotic and heavy metal resistance in motile aeromonads
and pseudomonads from rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) farms in Australia.
Virulence of Aeromonads
is considered to be multifactorial including cytotonic heat-labile (alt), and cytotonic heat-stable enterotoxins (ast), cytotoxic heat-labile enterotoxin (act), hemolysin (hly), aerolysin (aei), flagella A and flagella B (fla), lipase (lip), elastase (ela), serine protease (ser), and DNases (exu) .
Nosocomial outbreaks associated with aeromonads
have been reported.
hydrophila, we were interested in the prevalence of csrB and csrC in other aeromonads
