The order Aeromonadales, which contains a single family, Aeromonadaceae, with the Aeromonas, is herein proposed. Gram-negative, straight, rigid rods. Facultatively anaerobic; oxidase positive with rare exceptions and catalase positive. Includes motile (single, polar flagellum) and nonmotile species, as well as mesophilic and psychrophilic species. Primarily aquatic inhabitants of freshwater, marine, and especially estuarine environments, often associated with aquatic animals. Some species are either primary or opportunistic pathogens in humans, as well as a variety of other warm-blooded and cold-blooded animals and invertebrates.
