    Abstract

    During 1988, heavy mortalities were observed in 3 discrete populations of Atlantic salmon in Scotland. From moribund and dead animals, dense pure culture growth of an extremely proteolytic bacterium Serratia liquefaciens was recovered, which did not correspond to the description of any of the validly described fish pathogens. -from Authors
