Abstract
During a 3-month period from June to the end of August 2016, ~5% mortalities were observed in a farm with rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykissWalbaum) and one farm of common carp (Cyprinus carpioL.) in Bulgaria. The disease was manifested by gill ulcers/rot, asphyxiation and bloody ascites.Aeromonas hydrophilawas isolated from the internal organs of all the diseased fish.Bacillus mycoidesorB.pseudomycoideswere recovered from the gill lesions on diseased carp and rainbow trout, respectively, with identification achieved by conventional phenotyping and by sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene. In vivo experiments confirmed that all three organisms were pathogenic to rainbow trout.
