Abstract: The aim of present study is to characterize the resistance and virulence profile of enterococci isolated from aquaculture excavated ponds and masonry tanks (6 samples) in southern Brazil. Samples were cultured in selective medium, 10 colonies were randomly selected from each sample, which were identified by MALDI-TOF and tested against 13 antimicrobials. The presence of resistance (tetL, tetM, tetS, ermB and msrC) and virulence (ace, esp, agg, cylA and gelE) genes were determined by PCR. A total of 79 enteroco… Show more

“…Studies evaluating Enterococcus spp. also showed high frequencies of drug resistance in fish farming environments (Araújo et al, 2021) and in wild and captive Capuchin monkeys (Grassotti et al, 2018). Although the locations of these studies are not the same as those where the pigeons were sampled, the resistance frequencies observed, together with our findings, suggest that antimicrobial resistance is widespread and present in several animal species.…”

“…(2020) stated that E. faecalis was detected in 87.0% of pangasius fillets and prawns in Danish retail imported from Asia. E. faecalis prevalence in fish samples from Brazil was 44.3% (Araújo et al., 2021). Surveys conducted by Di Cesare et al.…”

“…Araújo et al. (2021) stated that the distribution of ace , agg , cylA , esp , and gelE virulence factors among the E. faecalis isolates of fish farms was 88.5%, 22.8%, 8.5%, 0.0%, and 97.1%, respectively. Unlike the present study, the esp gene was not detected in the isolates of Brazilian research (Araújo et al., 2021).…”
