  • Mycobacterium shottsii is a slowly growing, non-pigmented mycobacteria isolated from striped bass during an epizootic of mycobacteriosis in the Chesapeake Bay. Growth characteristics, acid-fastness and results of 16S rRNA gene sequencing were consistent with those of the genus Mycobacterium. A unique profile of biochemical reactions was observed among the 21 isolates. A single cluster of eight peaks identified by analysis of mycolic acids resembled those of reference patterns but differed in peak elution times from profiles of reference species of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. Etymology: shottsii; of Shotts, named after Emmett Shotts, an American fish bacteriologist.
