The relative susceptibility of fish to infections by Flexibacter columnaris and Flexibacter maritimus



The relative susceptibility of fish to infections by Flexibacter columnaris and Flexibacter maritimus



Aquaculture 140(3): 259-264



The susceptibility of freshwater and marine fish to infection by Flexibacter columnaris and Flexibacter maritimus was assessed in laboratory based experiments. Flexibactor columnaris produced a more severe disease in barramundi compared to goldfish. Both species suffered greater mortality at 25 degree C than at 20 degree C. Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) had similar levels of susceptibility to F. maritimus infection in seawater with approximate LC-50 values of 2.3 times 10-5 and 1.6 times 10-6 CFU mL-1 respectively. However, at salinity of 15 permill greenback flounder (Rhombosolea tapirina) were more resistant to F. maritimus than Atlantic salmon.
