The taxonomic structure and some metabolic features of the bacterial populations of the sea spongeVerongia sp were studied. Twenty-three symbiotrophic strains were isolated into axenic cultures and identified. These wereProteobacteria of the generaPseudoalteromonas andVibrio (about 52%), firmicutes with low G+C content (up to 22%), and bacteria of the generaFlavobacterium/Cytophaga/Bacteroides (13% of the strains studied). The strain KMM 3427, identified asBacillus subtilis, synthesized the secondary metabolite 2-p-hydroxyphenylalcohol (tyrosol), which is known to be an antifungal compound and may perform the function of chemical defence inVerongia sp.
