(One strain isolated and tested - J74)
Slightly curved and rod shaped, 0.5-0.8 x 2.0-3.0 µm in 3 days cultures at 30 ºC on
marine agar. Motile by at least one polar flagellum per cell.
Colonies are circular to slightly irregular, smooth, low-convex, pale-yellow and 2-3.5
mm in diameter after incubation for 3 days on marine agar. Can grow in nutrient broth
with: 1-7.5% NaCl. No growth in 0% NaCl, 8% NaCl, 10% NaCl & 12% NaCl.
Can grow at pH 5-10. Grow
s at  4-45 ºC. Facultative anaerobe.
Isolated from black sand from Soesoggak, Jeju island, Korea. Sensitive to vibriostatic agent O/129.
Unknown.
