Antibiotic susceptibility testting of aquaculture associated bacteria originating from aquaculture farms in the Mekong river Delta of Vietnam

A total of 196 chloramphenicol (CHL) resistant bacterial isolates originating from aquaculture farms in the Mekong river Delta of Viet nam was tested against six antimicrobials used in aquaculture, agriculture and human medicine.

Results of antibiotic susceptibility testing by the disk diffusion method showed that resistance to CHL alone was relatively rare (2%). The majority of isolates tested (59%) exhibited multi-resistance to three or four antibiotics in addition to CHL. The most common profiles (34%) included resistance to CHL, ampicillin, tetracyline, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole with/or without nitrofurantoin. In contrast, the CHL-resistant isolates (29%) were found to be relatively more susceptible to norfloxacin.
