This study shows that the SML is a potential source of surfactant-resistant and biosurfactant-producing bacteria in which Pseudomonads emerge as a relevant group.
Bacteriome Structure, Function, and Probiotics in Fish Larviculture: The Good, the Bad, and the Gaps.

This review examines molecular studies of bacterial diversity, function, and host immunity modulation at early stages of fish development, where microbial infections cause important economic losses, and proposes guidelines for future microbiome research of presumed relevance to fish larviculture.
Integrated analysis of bacterial and microeukaryotic communities from differentially active mud volcanoes in the Gulf of Cadiz
A 16S/18S rRNA gene based pyrosequencing approach was used to characterize and correlate the sediment bacterial and microeukaryotic communities from MVs with differing gas seep regimes and from an additional site with no apparent seeping activity, showing significant compositional changes.
Microbial Remediation of Organometals and Oil Hydrocarbons in the Marine Environment
Individual microbial agents or mixed microbial consortia able to remediate these pollutants in marine environments have been identified, and the most relevant mechanisms of biodegradation of pollutants are characterised.

The results indicate glycerol supplementation may decrease amino acid catabolism without adversely affecting fish gut bacterial communities, and can be an inexpensive and energetic alternative in fish feed formulations.
Independent and interactive effects of reduced seawater pH and oil contamination on subsurface sediment bacterial communities

Evidence is provided that bacterial communities inhabiting subsurface sediment may be less susceptible to the effects of oil contamination in a scenario of reduced seawater pH.
SELECTIVE CULTURES FOR THE ISOLATION OF BIOSURFACTANT PRODUCING BACTERIA: COMPARISON OF DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS OF ENVIRONMENTAL INOCULA AND HYDROPHOBIC CARBON SOURCES

The combination of estuarine surface microlayer water as inoculum and diesel as carbon source seems promising for the isolation of surfactant-producing bacteria.
Microcosm evaluation of the impact of oil contamination and chemical dispersant addition on bacterial communities and sediment remediation of an estuarine port environment
To evaluate the interactive effects of oil contamination and chemical dispersant application on bacterial composition and sediment remediation of an estuarine port environment, a large number of samples were negative for both oil and dispersant contamination.
