Abstract
Motile aeromonads isolated from ornamental fish shipments from Singapore and South America were tested for their resistance to amoxicillin, apramycin, cephalothin, chloramphenicol, enrofloxacin, furazolidone, oxolinic acid, oxytetracycline, streptomycin, sulphamethoxazole-trimethoprim, and sulphamethoxazole. Although antibiotic multiresistant bacteria from both origins were discovered in similar proportions, bacteria responded differently to specific antibiotics, such as oxolinic acid, apramycin and enrofloxacin, and this response varied depending on the origin. Nevertheless, the frequency of resistance to antibiotics was more pronounced in the bacterial groups tested for Singapore when compared with South America. The possible source and implications of these results are discussed.
