Edwardsiella tarda (strain EIB202) is a Gram-negative bacterium member of the normal gut microflora of fish, humans, chickens and other animals. This is the etiological agent for edwardsiellosis, a devastating fish disease prevailing in worldwide aquaculture industries and accounting for severe economical losses. This disease is often associated with poor water. E. tarda is pathogen of marine and freshwater fish isolated from channel catfish, Japanese eels, flounder, tilapia, and other economically important fish. It commonly affects more than 20 species of fishes including carp, tilapia, eel, catfish, mullet, salmon, trout, turbot and flounder, causing systemic hemorrhagic septicemia and emphysematous putrefactive disease with swelling skin lesions, as well as ulcer and necrosis in internal organs such as liver, kidney, spleen, and musculature. Besides piscine species, E. tarda also inhabits and infects a broad range of cold or warm -blooded hosts such as reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals and even humans, raising a concern about E. tarda being a significant zoonotic pathogen. It causes opportunistic infections in humans, most commonly gastroenteritis and wound infections. However, this organism has been isolated from cases of septicemia and meningitis, primarily in immunocompromised patients. (Adaptated from PMID: 19865481).
