Piscine mycobacteriosis is a fish disease mainly caused by Mycobacterium marinum, Mycobacterium fortuitum, or Mycobacterium chelonae. We have recently described one case of mycobacteriosis infection in farmed European tench (Tinca tinca L) by Mycobacterium peregrinum. To date, this has been the first description of mycobacterial infection in this fish specium and by this bacterium. In order to study the susceptibility of European tench to piscine mycobacteriosis, this work describes experimental infection in tenchs with Mycobacterium fortuitum by cohabitation with aquarium goldfishes (Carassius auratus red L.). Since the bacterial species involved in piscine mycobacteriosis are zoonosic pathogens to humans, the significance of mycobacterial infection in tenchs which are cultured as fish food and as fish to restock the natural reservoirs for fishing-capture activity, should not be overlooked
