Characteristics of Cytophaga psychrophila (Borg) Isolated from Outbreaks of Bacterial Cold-Water Disease


Characteristics of 10 strains of Cytophaga psychrophila isolated during a number of epizootics of bacterial cold-water disease were compared. Morphological, cultural, biochemical, and serological data showed that the organisms were very closely related. The isolates exhibited gliding motility, formed neither fruiting bodies nor microcysts, were actively proteolytic, and grew only at low temperatures. Data presented extend the description of C. psychrophila.
