Scholarcy highlights

  • This research demonstrates the occurrence of human adenoviruse in fresh seafood and the utility of fecal coliforms as indicators of Human adenoviruses presence in seafood
  • Human adenoviruses are the foodborne enteric pathogens transmitted by the consumption of contaminated shellfish
  • The occurrence of enteric adenoviruses in finfish and shellfish was investigated by virus concentration and polymerase chain reaction
  • The adenovirus DNA was detected in 21.27% of all the samples analyzed
  • The occurrence of adenoviruses in samples showed a positive correlation with the bacteriological indicators of fecal contamination, suggesting that fecal indicator bacteria may be used to monitor the presence of adenoviruses in seafood
  • The study emphasizes the need to identify Human adenoviruses in seafood as a human health hazard and implement measures to prevent sewage pollution of fish and shellfish harvesting areas in India
