Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a foodborne pathogen found in aquatic environments that poses as a risk to seafood consumers. The global increase of multidrug-resistant (MDR) V. parahaemolyticus threatens public health. The research found that MDR V. parahaemolyticus remain persistent in seafood, and identified antibiotic resistance genes within V. parahaemolyticus strain RP0132. The study investigated the antimicrobial properties of Streptomyces sp. and successfully identified Streptomyces woanfeiae sp. nov. as a potential anti-Vibrio agent. Continuous surveillance of MDR V. parahaemolyticus in seafood remains crucial, while exploring the potential of Streptomyces woanfeiae as an alternative to antibiotics to enhance public health outcomes.
