Prevalence of Aeromonas spp. in surface waters
Abstract:The quantity of Aeromonas spp. and Aeromonas hydrophila was determined in samples of fresh surface water, brackish, and seawater with different degrees of pollution, and their presence was compared with the classical indicators of water fecal pollution. Aeromonas spp. were isolated from all the water samples examined and their number, like that of Aeromonas hydrophila, was always higher than, and in some cases correlated with, that of fecal coliforms. The results obtained seem to confirm the opinion already expressed by other researchers regarding the importance of monitoring the presence of these bacteria to obtain more complete information on the degree of contamination of surface water.
