Özet

This study was carried out for the determination of the physico-chemical and microbiological quality and antibiogram profiles of the Aeromonas spp. isolated from Saricay stream in Canakkale - Turkey. The results indicated that water from this stream were of poor microbiological quality and unfit for human consumption. A total of 13 Aeromonas species were isolated from sixty (21.66%) water samples. This strains were identified as Aeromonas caviae (53.84%), A. hydrophila (23.07%), A. veronii by. sobria (23.07%). All aeromonads (100%) strains were resistant to erythromycin, amoxycillin, ampicillin (except one A.hydrophila strain), but susceptible to gentamicin.
