Abstract: In this study, one hundred and seventy isolates of V. parahaemolyticus from marine water fish and shellfish were analyzed by PCR for the presence of tdh and trh virulence genes and toxRS region pandemic gene. The tdh and trh gene was detected in 55.3% and 0.59% of isolates respectively; whereas, toxRS region was detected in 34.1% isolates. Findings of the present study suggested that marine water fish and shellfish isolates of V. parahaemolyticus harbor pathogenic as well as pandemic genes which may serve as source for clinical infection through food chain.
