Epidemiological studies of drug resistant strains in cultured fish and water


Nippon Suisan Gakkaishi 48(8): 1121-1128
Epidemiological studies of drug resistant strains in cultured fish and water
Various species of bacteria were isolated from cultured fish; the Aeromonas group was found most frequently in all the fish examined, followed by Flavobacterium and Pseudomonas. Common resistance patterns of R plasmids from drug-resistant organisms were tetracycline, [TC], chloramphenicol [CM], streptomycin[SM], sulfanilamide [SA]; CM, SM, SA; TC, SM, SA; and TC, SA. R plasmids encoding resistance to TC, SA; SA and CM, SM, SA were characteristic of bacteria in fish. A high frequency of nonconjugative drug resistance plasmids was found. These plasmids were mobilized in the presence of conjugative plasmids at a high frequency.
