Abstract

The first outbreak of disease due to an atypical Aeromonas salmonicida among turbot Scophthalmus maximus (L.) in Denmark is reported. The causal organism was oxidase-negative, non-pigmented, and slow-growing. Additionally it differed from the typical strains in a number of biochemical characters. The mortality among turbot in the farm was high but was responsive to antimicrobial therapy.
