Suspected vibriosis outbreak on sea bass farmed in floating cages needed confirmation and therapy/management instructions. A scheme comprising a combination of diagnostic and clinical methods was introduced for a better problem-solving. Within 24 hours since submission of fish for examination, bacterial cultures were isolated and rapid agglutination test identified V. anguillarum, while in 48 hours antimicrobial susceptibility was determined and targeted therapy recommended. Further physiological and biochemical tests were continued, which gave a readable result in 72 hours post submission of fish. Development of a rapid, sensitive and cost-effective protocol for identification of vibriosis caused by V. anguillarum is crucial due to quick onset of high mortality and great economic damage it can inflict.
