The Escherichia coli phage CMSTMSU was isolated from shrimp farm effluent water in Ramanathapuram, India. The phage exhibited lytic activity against both E. coli and the fish pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Here we report the draft genome sequence, assembly, and annotation of the isolated CMSTMSU phage. This genome resource can be used to utilize the phage as a crucial biocontrol agent in the fish aquaculture sector.
