Abstract: Eight isolates of Vibrio mimicus from 20 prawns (Macrobrachium malcolmsonii) obtained from fresh water in Bangladesh were tested for enterotoxin production and antibiotic sensitivity. Six of the eight isolates (75%) induced fluid accumulation in rabbit ileal loops. AN isolates were resistant to kanamycin and streptomycin and sensitive to chloramphenicol, gentamictn and trimethoprim-suffame-thoxazole; 75% were sensitive to ampicilfin. The proportion of isolates producing toxin of all isolates and their pattern of sensitivity to antimicrobial drugs resembled human isolates of V mimicus.
