Abstract:Vibrio species are ubiquitous in aquatic environments, including coastal and marine habitats. Vibrio alginolyticus is an opportunistic pathogen for fish, crustaceans and mussels and their identification by biochemical tests may be impaired due their nutritional requirements. The study used Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) to identify 49 Vibrio spp. isolates associated with mussels (Perna perna) from different locations along the Rio de Janeiro coast.
