V. vulnificus has been isolated from waters[7] with temperatures ranging from 9°C to 31 °C, but proliferation was observed when the temperature exceeded 18°C[8] and will revert to a viable but nonculturable (VNBC) state if water temperatures go below 10°C and, therefore, could become undetectable by culturing.[1] Interestingly, studies on temperature resistance showed better results when V. vulnificus is subjected to starvation.1-9-1 It also appears that for waters with salinity above 20 ppt, V. vulnificus levels decline and should not be considered as a risk for humans.[10]
