    Piscirickettsiaceae: Brief Summary
    provided by wikipedia

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