Özet

Monitoring of Vibrio species by blue crabs (Callinectes sapidus) was carried out during the winter period in a selected area of the Belek, Antalya Gulf. Eighty-three blue crabs were examined for Vibrio species. V. alginolyticus (30.1%), V. fluvialis (10.8%), V. damsela (9.6%), V. harveyi (3.6%), V. metschnikovii (3.6%) and V. vulnificus (2.4%) were isolated. V. vulnificus was the highest concentration (5x10(8) Vibrio ml(-1)) although it was only 2.4% isolated from blue crabs. The strains of different vibrio species were highly susceptible to doxycycline, tetracycline and ciprofloxacin.
