Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a gram negative bacteria that lives naturally in brackish saltwater. When a person is infected, symptoms usually begin within 24 hours. Most people recover on their own without medical treatment, but anyone with a weakened immune system or chronic live disease can become severely ill and may need to be hospitalized. Vibrio outbreaks usually occur in the summer and early fall months when water temperatures are warmer.
