Vibrio vulnificans infections

Recommended Posts

Guest

For those fisherman along the Gulf of Mexico, you may want to take a look at the August Contraband Fly Casters Newsletter at

http://www.geocities.com/contrabandflycasters/newslets.htm

which has an article about Vibrio vunificans infections. Vibrio vulnificans is a saltwater bacteria (always present in warm seawater, and not related to pollution) which can enter the body through cuts and scrapes and cause serious problems. This summer along the Texas and Louisiana coasts there have been 6 cases, resulting in one death and amputation of four limbs. this stuff can be deadly. a little knowledge might save your life.
