Distribution of Aeromonas Species in the Intestinal Tracts of River Fish

By H. Sugita, K. Tanaka, M. Yoshinami and Y. Deguchi

Abstract

Aeromonas isolates were obtained from fish intestines, water, and sediments from an urban river and identified by the DNA-DNA microplate hybridization method. The isolates were Aeromonas veronii (22%), Aeromonas caviae (18%), Aeromonas hydrophila (13%), Aeromonas sobria (8%), Aeromonas jandaei (7%), and other Aeromonas spp. (33%). Aeromonas species occurred at high densities with high incidences, regardless of season. The results strongly suggest that aeromonads are indigenous in fish intestines, water, and sediments of rivers and have the potential to be predominant in aquatic environments
