Mycobacterium marinum is a slowly growing non-tuberculous (environmental, atypical) mycobacterium with zoonotic potential. It occurs in the aquatic environment and causes diseases in fish and other aquatic animals known as mycobacterioses. In humans, it primarily causes skin infections, which are most commonly located in the upper limbs. The disease commonly appears in connection with the aquarium environment and is thus referred to as fish tank granuloma. As with all mycobacterial diseases, treatment is complicated and lengthy. For a definitive determination of the pathogen, biological materials should always be examined in a laboratory specializing in diagnosing mycobacteria. Critical for the right diagnosis is proper sample collection and assessment of the patient's history. To detect mycobacteria, culture and microscopy are generally used. Species are identified using modern biological methods such as mass spectrometry (MALDI), polymerase chain reaction, hybridization probes or sequencing.
