In Europe, Flexibacter rnaritiinus has been isolated from Dover sole (Solea solea), sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax), turbot (Scophthalmtls maximus), Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), and coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch). In  Japan, the disease  has  been reported  from red sea bream (Pagrus major),   black sea bream (Acanthopagrus schlegeli), and Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceous).  Recently, F. maritimus  has  been isolated  in Southern  California,  USA,  from white  sea bass  (Atractoscion nobilis),  Pacific sardine (Sardinops sagax), and northern anchovy (Engraulis mordax).
