Summary and Conclusions

Six species of fish, black bullhead (), black crappie (), large mouth bass (), northern pike (), yellow perch (), and rainbow trout () was injected intraperitoneally with 1 ml of a 48 hour culture of . All of the fish were negative from 1 to 10 days after inoculation as determined by guinea pig inoculation, serum agglutination tests, and attempts at direct cultural isolation of the organism. Bullheads fed infected liver also remained negative. These negative findings indicate that certain fish are not susceptible to tularemia and, consequently, would not represent a reservoir of the disease and a public health menace.
