Abstract

Suscetibility assays were performed for 48 Vibrio strains isolated from pond-reared Litopenaeus vannamei in Ceará, Brazil. The diffusion assays tested 11 antibiotics. The most resistant species was V. cholerae: of 12 strains tested, one third was resistant to sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim, one fourth to ampicillin and one third to ceftriaxone.
