Abstract The genus Aeromonas comprises ubiquitous bacteria that are known to play several roles in the environment. They were first described as fish pathogens, but their presence has been widely documented in other reservoirs, in animals, and also in humans. To date, they are described as bona fide pathogens, but their effective role in human pathogenicity is still controversial. The focus of this article is to provide an overview of the genus mainly focussed on their role in food and health, trying to tackle the main issues that still make Aeromonas a complex genus.
