Abstract

The fish probiotic bacterium Roseobacter strain 27-4 grows only as rosettes and produces its antibacterial compound under static growth conditions. It forms three-dimensional biofilms when precultured under static conditions. We quantified attachment of Roseobacter strain 27-4 using a direct real-time PCR method and demonstrated that the bacteria attached more efficiently to surfaces during static growth than under aerated conditions.
