Abstract

A selective medium, called Edwardsiella ictaluri medium (EIM), has been formulated for the isolation of Edwardsiella ictaluri. The medium inhibits the growth of most gram-negative bacteria, except Proteus sp., Serratia marcescens and some isolates of Aeromonas hydrophila and Yersinia ruckeri. The bacteria that grow on the EIM are easily differentiated from E. ictaluri based on colony morphology. The EIM inhibits gram-positive bacteria with the exception of enterococci. The addition of fungizone to EIM suppressed the growth of most fungi. The EIM allows the evaluation of environmental reservoirs, levels of contamination and carrier states of E. ictaluri.
