Abstract

Several characteristics of 20 strains of oxidative pseudomonads, all but one of which were isolated from freshwater fish, were determined. All strains oxidized glucose and gluconate, produced NH from 1 % peptone, grew at 6, 12, 20 and 30° and produced cytochrome oxidase. Lipase was produced by 17 of the strains, while 15 produced gelatinase, and 16 produced fluorescent pigment. These and other characteristics used to identify fish-spoilage pseudomonads are also useful for identification of fish-pathogenic pseudomonads. Species determinations from the present data were not attempted. However, from previously published data on speciation of , most of the 20 strains appeared to be closely related to or identical with P. .
