Background Vibrio salmonicida is a Gram-negative marine bacterium that is a cause of cold-water vibriosis in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), cod and occasionally rainbow trout. It is prevalent in fish farms. Clinical signs are inappetence and erratic swimming, with anaemia and haemorrhage with a generalized septicaemia, presenting large amounts of bacterial cells in the blood of moribund or recently dead fish. The haemorrhages are mainly found in the integument surrounding the internal organs of the fish (adapted from Vaccines are available against this pathogen. (EBI Integr8)
