The Piscirickettsiaceae are a family of Proteobacteria. All species are aerobes found in water.[1] The species Piscirickettsia salmonis is a fish pathogen and causes piscirickettsiosis in salmonid fishes.[2] It lives in cells of infected hosts and cannot be cultured on artificial media.[1] Piscirickettsia salmonis is nonmotile, whereas the other five genera are motile by using a single flagellum.[1]
