Three novel strains of methylotrophic methanogens were isolated from Skan Bay, Alaska, by using anaerobic cultivation techniques. The water was 65 m deep at the sampling site. Strains AK-4 (=OCM 774), AK-5T (=OCM 775T=DSM 17273T) and AK-9 (=OCM 793) were isolated from the sulfate-reducing zone of the sediments. Each of the strains was a non-motile coccus and occurred singly. Cells grew with trimethylamine as a catabolic substrate and strain AK-4 could also catabolize methanol.
