Abstract:

The antibacterial screening of chloroform extract of Exoecaria agallocha was studied. Chloroform extract of leaves exhibited strong inhibitory activity against all the pathogens tested. The six chloroform fractions of E. agallocha leaf extracts were collected and tested against the fish pathogens. The 3rd fraction of chloroform from the leaf extracts were showed maximum activity against Bacillus subtilis, followed by Aeromonas hydrophyla, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, V. harveyi and Serratia sp., respectively. Of these 3rd fraction showed maximum activity (12 mm) against Vibrio parahaemolyticus, followed by Bacillus subtilis (10 mm), V. harveyi, (10 mm) and A. hydrophyla (8 mm). However another chloroform fraction from E. agallocha showed no activity against selected fish pathogens.
