Abstract

Out of the three observations made during the period May and June 1997, totally 13 isolates of oxidase positive gram negative rods were encountered from water and sediment samples of perennial and pokkali fields. Three strains were producing greenfluorescent pigment. Fluorescent pigment production was enhanced by dipotassium hydrogen phosphate when compared to glycerol and magnesium chloride. Five cultures showed antagonistic activity against all the test pathogens, namely, Vibrio anguilarum. Mycobacterium and Cytophaga and were found highly resistant to penicillin.
