Abstract

Forty-four strains of Vibrio anguillarum serogroup O1 isolated from dead or diseased fish from several mainly European, countries were selected for rRNA gene restriction pattern analysis. with HindIII, 6 different ribotypes were detected of which 1 profile was dominant with respect to geographical distribution as well as fish species. Also with EcoRI, 6 patterns were found; 1 profile was clearly dominant. The majority of strains belonging to the dominant HindIII profile also expressed the dominant EcoRI profile. It is concluded that ribotyping may be a valuable tool in epidemiological investigations and for research purposes within V. anguillarum serogroup O1.
