ABSTRACT:
Bacteriologic examination of an

abscess found between blubber and musculature
of a striped dolphin (


Stenella coeruleoalba)

found dead on 30 March 2002 in the Adriatic
Sea, Croatia, was performed and an aerotolerant,
nontoxogenic


Clostridium tertium was

isolated in pure culture. National Collections
of Industrial Food and Marine Bacteria
(NCIMB Ltd., Aberdeen, Scotland, UK) confirmed
the results. Sequencing results showed
it to be


C. tertium with 100% similarity. The

strain was named


Clostridium tertium strain

Zagreb, acceded to the culture collection and
assigned the accession number NCIMB 13970.
This is the first record of
