Abstract: 
Background and objective: Vibrio parahaemolyticus is widely distributed in marine environments and is associated with gastroenteritis cases caused by consumption of contaminated seafood. Clinical manifestations of V. parahaemolyticus infections include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting. V.
parahaemolyticus food poisoning was mainly caused by consumption of seafood such as fish, crab, shrimp, shellfish and mollusks. However, other food products may also be cross-contaminated. The objective of present study was to investigate the vibrio species contamination in various type of fish and shrimp in Isfahan.
Materials and methods: A total of 411 fish and shrimp samples were collected from 18 fish stores in Isfahan. The samples were obtained between 2003-2004. Prevalence of vibrio species was determined by using pre-enrichment in selective media and streaking on TCBS. Then, the isolates were identified by biochemical reactions.
Results: Vibrio parahaemolyticus and other species of vibrio were present in (6) 1/5% and (10) 2/4% of samples respectively.
Conclusion: The Results of the present investigation indicate the fact that there is a need to improve hygienic condition of seafoods in Isfahan.
