    Abstract

    A case of vibriosis caused by Vibrio harveyi in adult mangrove red snappers reared in floating net cages is reported for the first time from India. The pathogen was confirmed using biochemical characterisation, by nested PCR and 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Histopathology revealed chronic nature of the disease. The outbreak of mortality was consequent to elevated water temperature and handling. Importance of stress factors as stimulus to outbreak of mortality is discussed.
