Nishimori et al. 2000.
Gram-negative, 0.5-1 / 2.5-4.5 µm, motile rods.
Colonies are hemolytic. Fluorescent pigment is produced.
Strictly aerobic, optimal temperature 10-30 ºC, no growth at 4 ºC or 41 ºC.
Media: Trypticase Soy Agar ± 5% sheep blood, King medium B.
Isolated from fish (Plecoglossus altivelis - ayu).
Fish pathogen (haemorrhagic ascitis).

    haemorrhagic ascites of ayu, Plecoglossus altivelis. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2000, 50, 83-89.
Arginine dihydrolase is produced. Can utilize: 2-ketogluconate, D-malate, propylene
glycol, phenyl acetate, L-lysine & L-citrulline.

Negative results for d
enitrification, levan formation from sucrose, gelatin liquefaction,
lecithinase (egg yolk) & lipase (Tween 80 hydrolysis).
No utilization of mannitol, D-xylose, L-arabinose, D-mannose, sucrose, trehalose, tartrate, m-tartrate, m-inositol, testosterone, L-
tryptophan, L-kynurenine, anthranilate & nicotinate.

Cannot be easily differentiated from
Pseudomonas putida (admin note).
