Interrelationships of environmental factors, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, and other bacteriological indices of oysters, water, and sediment from the Gulf of Mexico.
(Texas A&M University., 1975)
A total of 153 samples of oysters, water, and sediment were tested for the presence of V. parahaemolyticus. Standard Plate Counts of the oysters ranged from 5.0 x 10 exp.3 to > 3.0 x 10 exp.7 per g. Aerobic Plate Counts ...
Relationship of Vibrio parahaemolyticus in oysters, water and sediment, and bacteriological and environmental indices.
Of 153 samples of oysters, water and sediment tested from the Galveston Bay system, 94 (61.4%) were positive for V. parahaemolyticus. In 87% of the positive oyster samples the level of V. parahaemolyticus was <100 per g. ...
Emergence of a new Vibrio parahaemolyticus serotype in raw oysters
An increase in the number of cases of Vibrio paraheamolyticus were reported in 1998. Studies were done to track these problems to try and control them. The studies linked the Vibrio paraheamolyticus to contaminated oyster ...
Zooplankton and phytoplankton from Galveston Bay: taxonomic distribution and coexistence with Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
Taxonomic distribution and V. parahaemolyticus count of 36 samples of zooplankton and 4 samples of phytoplankton are presented. In nearly all samples, immature forms of zooplankton accounted for more than 50% of the ...
Isolation of Vibrio parahemolyticus from Gulf coast shrimp.
Vibrio parahemolyticus, a major cause of gastroenteritis in Japan, was isolated from white shrimp (Penaeus setiferus) in Galveston Bay, Texas. The organism was pathogenic for brown shrimp (Penaeus aztecus) from the same area.
