Abstract
Fifteen plant extracts were screened against Vibrio harveyi using well diffusion method. Methane extract of Piper betel showed highest antibacterial activity of 35mm. Due to its less toxicity and potent antibacterial activity, the methanol extract of Piper betel may be one of the best options for developing novel antimicrobial compounds for management of diseases caused by Vibrio harveyi.
