In 2015 and 2016, a previously unrecognized Francisella sp. was isolated from disease outbreaks in maricultured spotted rose snapper (Lutjanus guttatus) on the Pacific coast of Central America. Polyphasic analysis demonstrated these bacteria differed from any known Francisella spp. Here, the complete genomes from the recently described Francisella marina strains are released.
