  • Other Comments:

    This work describes the identification of potential human pathogens from shellfish in Grenada and their antimicrobial susceptibility. It is an important initiative in raising awareness of potential risks involved in shellfish consumption, but the sample number of each kind of shellfish limits the overall conclusions of the study regarding the prevalence of these pathogens in samples.

    The discussion section should be shortened a bit to improve the text flow and some typos should be corrected throughout the text.
