  • ABSTRACT

    This study examined the antimicrobials properties of bacteria using the minimum inhibitory concentration method. The bacteria were isolated from 30 shellfish (oysters and short neck clams) collected from Jawol-myeon, Ongjin-gun, Incheon and Iwon-myeon, Taean-gun, Chungcheongnam-do, on the west coast of Korea. A total of 528 bacteria were isolated from June to October 2020 and were classified into land-originating (LB; 264 strains) and marine-originating (MB; 264 strains) bacterial groups. Of the LB strains, 10 genera were identified, of which nine were Enterobacteriaceae. All MB strains were identified as species of the genus Vibrio spp.. Antimicrobial resistance to one or more agents was observed in 77.3% of the LB strains, and 90-100% of them were resistant to ampicillin Escherichia spp. were not resistant to ampicillin. The overall multidrug resistance rate of the LB strains was 49.2%, with 85 resistance patterns. Antimicrobial resistance to one or more agents was observed in 98.1% of the MB strains, because most of the V. alginolyticus and V. parahaemolyticus strains were resistant to ampicillin. The overall multidrug resistance rate of the MB strains was 1.9% with 19 resistance patterns.
