Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative rod shape bacterium belonging to family Pseudomonadaceae. The species is a highly adaptable opportunistic pathogen capable of surviving in a variety of environment, including aquaculture environment. Antibiotics are used in the aquaculture environment, and their usage poses a risk of potential transfer of resistance to human and animal pathogens. This study was conducted to isolate P. aeruginosa and identify them based on the PCR detection of oprL gene locus. These species were isolated from fish, prawn and water. Antibiotic resistance pattern was determined by conducting antibiotic susceptibility tests on the isolates. Thirteen isolates of P. aeruginosa were isolated and all of the isolates show resistance to at least one antibiotic. Highest level of resistance was observed against ampicillin and erythromycin and the lowest group was against gentamicin, norflaxin and nalidixic acid.
