Abstract

In that study, a total of 22 sea and mangrove samples from the State of Veracruz were isolated and tested for antimicrobial sensitivity with 9 different antibiotics. The objective was to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration using the modified E-test technique. Phenotypic susceptibility tests revealed that the antibiotics with the highest range of action were Levofloxacin with a total of 77% inhibition of total strains, ciprofloxacin with 81%, sulfametazone with 81% and tetracycline was the most antibiotic antimicrobial activity presented with 90%. This provides information on resistance in non-clinical sample bacteria. 3 bacterial species were identified, being: Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus thuringiensis, Ochrobactrum anthropi.
