Vibrio is a gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium that is characterized by a rigid curve, usually motile due to to a unique polar scourge. V. cholerae, V. parahaemolyticus and V. yulniftcus are three known pathogenic species of Vibrio with documented cases. Vibro is commonly found in seawater, as it can tolerate a high salt concentration. Foods that are we contaminate with Vibrio can have negative health consequences, starting with diarrhea and, worse, death. Therefore, it is considered as a release parameter for shellfish and shellfish products.
