Abstract

Two hundred and eighty four presumptive but not confirmed Vibrio vulnificus isolates grown on cellobiose-polymixin B-colistin agar (CPC) at 40 degrees C, recovered from sea water samples from Valencia, Spain, during a microbiological survey for V. vulnificus, were phenotypically identified. Most of the isolates (91%) corresponded to Vibrio species. V. harveyi (24%) and V. splendidus(19%) were the most abundant species identified, followed by V. navarrensis (13%), V. alginolyticus (8%) and V. parahaemolyticus (5%). The ability to grow on CPC agar and ferment cellobiose of several V. vulnificus strains from different origins and serovars, including reference strains, was tested. Most serovar E isolates and 25% of non-serovar E isolates could not grow on CPC agar.
