Abstract:

Shewanella algae is an emerging pathogen with an increasing rate of association in clinical samples worldwide. Exposure to marine and brackish waters has frequently been linked to human infection. The present study has examined the prevalence of the bacterium in shrimp which is a brackish water crop. The bacterium was isolated from about 8% of the shrimps’ samples cultured and sold in different parts of West Bengal, India. The isolates produced hemolysin and were thus considered virulent. An increase in the occurrence of human infections caused by S. algae and a significant presence of the bacterium in shrimp warrants need for higher surveillance of the pathogen in clinical samples.
