I've been trying to find out the specific type of bacteria which inhabit

This is in regards to an article I read from the "Danish Institute of
Fisheries Research" in which they stated that they found that a strain of
Pseudomonas spp. bacteria found on a carcass seemed to inhibit a Vibrio..
Any ideas?
