Vibrio species represent a significant portion of the culturable heterotrophic bacteria of oceans, coastal waters and estuaries. Various species of this genus are devastating pathogens for finfish, shellfish and mammals.

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium, V.cholerae is the etiological agent of cholera, a severe diarrheal disease that occurs most frequently in epidemic form. Cholera has been epidemic in southern Asia for at least 1000 years; epidemics are usually associated with poor sanitary conditions. Vibrio cholerae as a species includes both pathogenic and non pathogenic strains that vary in their virulence and gene content. There are 2 major serogroups that cause epidemic cholera, O1 and O139. Serogroup O1 is further classified into two biotypes, classical and El Tor, and into two major serotypes, Inaba and Ogawa. Analysis of epidemic O1 strains that caused cholera outbreaks in Latin America in 1991 revealed that the El Tor Inaba strains were unique to Latin America. O1 strains may exhibit serotype conversion or switching between Inaba and Ogawa serotypes.
