Abstract
    The total number of 1829 Vibrio isolates were collected from different continents. Isolates originated mainly from larvae of molluscs, shrimps, fish, their food (microalgae, Artemia sp., rotifers, ration), and culture environment (i.e., tank water, inlet water, sediment). All isolates were phenotypically characterized using the Biolog GN technique. Isolates were found forming 90 clusters of which 33 were identified. Biolog could not distinguish V. harveyi from V. aestuarinus, V. alginolyticus from V. hollisae, and V. ichthyoenteri from V..penaeicida 57 other groups (481 isolates) did not cluster with any of the included type strains and remained unidentified indicating that the genus Vibrio harbors a great diversity of phenotypes and that several taxa from the aquaculture environment are yet to be described.
