Query: NC_011753:206178 Vibrio splendidus LGP32 chromosome 1, complete genome Lineage: Vibrio splendidus; Vibrio; Vibrionaceae; Vibrionales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Vibrio splendidus LGP32 (CIP 107715) caused significant mortalities in oysters, Crassostrea gigas, during the summer of 2001. This genus is abundant in marine or freshwater environments such as estuaries, brackish ponds, or coastal areas; regions that provide an important reservoir for the organism in between outbreaks of the disease. Vibrio can affect shellfish, finfish, and other marine animals and a number of species are pathogenic for humans. This microbe inflicts disease and death in many marine species causing massive damage to industries devoted to their production, including fish, oysters, mussels, and scallops.

General Information: This species was isolated from a microbial community colonizing the accessory nidamental gland of the squid Loligo peali (Atlantic squid) for their capacity to respire on sulfur. It was placed in the Shewanella genus based on physiological and biochemical characteristics and 16S rRNA sequence analysis. Shewanella are ubiquitous in marine environment and play very important role in global carbon and nitrogen cycle. The present strain is moderately halophilic, requiring sodium ions for growth. Shewanella are facultatively anaerobic, Gram-negative bacteria, motile by polar flagella, rod-like, and generally associated with aquatic or marine environments.
