Motile Aeromonas Septicaemia (MAS) is a disease that has the potential to become an epidemic in freshwater cultured fish and is caused by Aeromonas hydrophila. Farmers use antibiotics as treatment and are considered the most effective countermeasures. Antibiotics that are not as recommended can cause bacteria to become resistant. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the resistance of A. hydrophila bacteria to three antibiotics i.e. oxytetracycline, tetracycline, and enrofloxacine. The research was conducted by explorative method. A. hydrophila was isolated from samples of pond water, inlet water, outlet water, pond sediment, catfish (Clarias sp.), and tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). The samples were taken from fish farm in Banten Province. A. hydrophila isolates were identified by biochemical tests using Vitek 2 compact, then A.hydrophila susceptibility test to three antibiotics was carried out in vitro using the disc diffusion method. A. hydrophila which is known to be resistant to certain antibiotics is continued with the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) test. Results of this study, 31 A. hydrophila isolates were obtained, where the percentage of oxytetracycline was 6.4%, tetracycline was 3.2% and enrofloxacin not shown resistance. MIC value of tetracycline and oxytetracycline in the A. hydrophila isolates was 16 µg/mL.
