Abstract

Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a halophilic bacterium capable of causing food- and waterborne gastroenteritis, wound infections, and septicaemia in humans. The wide distribution of V. parahaemolyticus in the marine and estuarine environments is known to depend on the water temperature: it has been suggested that the bacterium might survive in sediments during the winter and be released into the water column in late spring or early summer when the temperature rises to 15°C or higher [1]. .
