  The aim of this study was to investigate the occurrence of campylobacters in chicken at farms (close-house system and open-house system), slaughtering (conventional slaughterhouse and processing plant) and retail (wet market and supermarket). Campylobacter spp. was not found in cloacal swabs in chickens aged of 4 weeks in farms with close-house system. Campylobacter spp. was found in cloacal swabs (95.0%) in four weeks old chicken in farms with open-house systems. End-slaughtering samples from conventional slaughterhouse and processing plant were contaminated with Campylobacter spp. at 84.0% and 94.0%, respectively. Campylobacter contamination on wet market and supermarket samples with 78.0% and 92.0%, respectively. Close-house system at farm level was able to prevent or delay Campylobacter spp. colonization in chickens but contamination by Campylobacter spp. at retail level was still high. Therefore, monitoring of Campylobacter spp. in chicken products at retail level is crucial to reduce risk of human ingestion of Campylobacter spp. through chicken products.

  The rapid increases in global aquaculture industry have exposed many diseases that were not known in aquaculture fields. Streptococcus agalactiae, one of Streptococci species that infecting both terrestrial and aquatic animals. The organisms have been isolated from numerous fish species in natural disease outbreaks and showed to be pathogenic to several fish species. Recently, few streptococcosis outbreaks affecting cultured Red tilapia in Selangor were investigated and the S. agalactiae isolate was used to study its pathogenicity on juvenile Red tilapia. The 120 h 50% endpoint (LD50) value in juvenile tilapia injected Intraperitoneally (IP) was 1.56x105 cfu mL-1. Experimental infections were carried out by bathing the fish for 30 min in water containing the bacteria and by IP injection. It was observed that IP route was more potent to cause mortality to juvenile Red tilapia and produced clear clinical signs within 5 days. It was noted that the mortality started to reduce after 5 days and fish recovered after 9 days post inoculation. In contrast, immersion route did not induce mortality but produced moderate clinical signs such as lethargy and loss of appetite and fish started to recover after 6 days. The findings of the current study would enable us to formulate a suitable measure to prevent and control future disease outbreaks.
