The predominant anaerobe from the spiral intestine of hatchery-raised sturgeon ( Acipenser transmontanus ), a new Bacteroides species



203 140 140 1 1 Joshua L. Callman Joan M. Macy Department of Animal Science University of California 95616 Davis CA USA Abstract The anaerobic and aerobic bacterial flora from the spiral intestine of hatchery-raised sturgeon were enumerated. Among the obligate anaerobes, a new bacteroidelike organism was isolated and found to be the predominant strict anaerobe. The organism is Gram-negative, produces the fermentation products acetate, succinate, propionate and H 2 . The mol % G+C of DNA from various strains ranged from 33.17–33.65. The optimum sodium concentration for this organism was found to be 137 mM; the sodium level in the sturgeon spiral intestine ranged from 94.5–110.0mM. Based on these and other physiological characteristics, the organism appears to be a new species of the genus Bacteroides .
