A gram-negative curved rod-shaped bacterium involved as pathogens among marine species including shrimps, fish and mollusks.


Vibrio campbellii is extensively distributed in marine organisms including fish, shrimps and mollusks. It has several gene clusters for the biosynthesis on bacteriocin and nonribosomal peptides.

Vibrio campbellii is implicated as an emerging pathogen in aquatic organism which is isolated from the green barrel tunicate. It comprises genes related to virulence and environmental tolerance in which it carries genes such as hemolysin, secretion system and ToxR that is accountable for virulence.

Vibrio campbellii has a genome associated with environmental adaptation including oxidative stress, osmotic stress, siderophores and thermal shock.
