Naturally concurrent infections of bacterial and viral pathogens in disease outbreaks in cultured Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) farms

Naturally concurrent infections of bacterial and viral pathogens in disease outbreaks in cultured Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) farms | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Ha Thanh Dong et al. Aquacuture - doi:10.1016/j.aquaculture.2015.06.027 

 

The reality of dead-loss in cultured fish farms due to multiple pathogen infections probably outweighs single infection. Here, we describe the isolation and characterization of the potential pathogens concurrently infected in natural disease outbreaks of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and their pathogenicity in the red tilapia fingerling model. Co-infection of bacteria and Iridovirus was found in two affected farms. Based on conventional phenotypic tests and sequence analysis of 16S rDNA fragment, most predominant bacteria were identified as Flavobacterium columnare and Aeromonas veronii, and remainders were Streptococcus agalactiae, Plesiomonas shigeloides andVibrio cholerae. Experimental infection with selected single bacterial isolates demonstrated that both alpha- and beta-hemolytic A. veronii isolates were highly pathogenic to tilapia fingerling, whereas F. columnare and S. agalactiae were less virulent and P. shigeloides was avirulent. The fish exposed to A. veronii or F. columnaremimicked major internal and external clinical signs of naturally infected fish respectively. This suggests that A. veronii and F. columnare are two main pathogens co-responsible for the dead-loss of cultured tilapia farms in the present study, whereas remaining pathogens might serve as opportunistic pathogens in the disease outbreaks.
