Vibrio vulnificus is a seafood-associated pathogen that causes severe wound and intestinal infections. Biotype 3 of V. vulnificus emerged in 1996 as the cause of an Israeli outbreak associated with the handling of infected tilapia. Here, we describe the wholegenome sequence of the ATCC biotype 3 clinical isolate BAA87 (CDC9530-96).
