|Abstract||Mycobacterium shottsii and M. pseudoshottsii are recently described mycobacteria commonly isolated from Chesapeake Bay striped bass Morone saxatilis. However, their distribution in striped bass outside of the Chesapeake region and their ability to infect alternative hosts have not been described. Mycobacteria identified as M. shottsii (based on fatty acid methyl ester analysis and multigene sequencing) were isolated from striped bass collected in Albemarle Sound, North Carolina, and white perch Morone americana in the Rhode River, Maryland, and detected in striped bass from the New York Bight off Long Island, New York. Mycobacterium pseudoshottsii were isolated from white perch in the Rhode and Corsica rivers, Maryland, and detected in striped bass in the New York Bight. This work demonstrates that these mycobacteria can be found outside of the Chesapeake Bay as well as in hosts other than striped bass.|
