Aeromonas spp., non-cholera vibrios (NCVs) and Plesiomonas shigelloides belong to the expanding group of water and food-borne pathogens. They are widely distributed in aquatic environments and are increasingly regarded as important pathogens of aquatic animals, causing significant economic losses in the aquaculture industry worldwide. In addition, these bacteria have been implicated as opportunistic pathogens, mainly causing gastroenteritis in humans. The occurrence and isolation of these bacteria from different sources has been reported in Asia, including the Philippines and Thailand. However, information on antimicrobial susceptibility of these isolates, especially those recovered from aquaculture and aquatic environments is scarce. The aim of this study was to acquire data on the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance among 38 strains of Aeromonas spp., NCVs and P. shigelloides isolated from different sources in the Philippines and Thailand. In addition, the production of extended-spectrum ß-lactamases (ESBLs) by selected strains was determined.
