    Antimicrobial resistance in bacterial pathogens is a global public health problem. The aim of this research was to reveal the distribution and antimicrobial drug resistance of bacterial pathogens in diseased catfish, Clarias gariepinus (Burchell) from Marang River Terengganu, Malaysia. Eleven isolates of Aeromonas hydrophila were derived from diseased fish. Commercial biochemical identification kit (BBL-Crystal) and the PCR products of 16S rDNA was used to identify the isolated bacterial strains. Disc diffusion method using 6 types of antibiotic discs was performed for antibiotics susceptibility testing. The majority of isolated bacteria were A. hydrophila. All isolates of A. hydrophila were resistance to Ampicillin and susceptible to tetracycline of the analyzed isolates against the tested antibiotics. Multiple drug resistance index (MAR) for all isolates was ranged from 0.10 to 0.50.. Read More»
