Vibrio species are the major food borne pathogens commonly associated with aquatic food poisonings and lead to food-borne outbreaks. In this present study, out of 105 fresh water fish (Catlacatla) samples collected, 87 (82.85%) were found positive for Vibrio species. Out of 87, 6 (6.9%), 2 (2.3%), 4 (4.6%) and 3 (3.45%) isolates were found to be V. parahaemolyticus and V. vulnificus, V. alginolyticus and V. cholerae respectively by mPCR. The 15 different Vibrio species were subjected to antibiogram studies including ESBL detection. Antibiotics like ampicillin, penicillin, gentamycin, amikacin, tetracycline, ceftazidime, streptomycin and co-trimoxazole were used for antibiogram profile. Out of 15 isolates, 5 isolates were found positive for ESBLs by both phenotypic and molecular methods. Out of 5ESBL (only TEM gene) positive isolates, 2 (33.33%), 1 (50%), 1 (25%) and 1 (33.33%) were from V. parahaemolyticus, V. vulnificus, V. alginolyticus and V. cholera respectively by mPCR.

Keywords: Vibrio vulnificus, V. parahaemolyticus, V. alginolyticus, V. cholerae, Freshwater fishes, Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamases
