The microbial organism with the second highest number of hits in all samples was Alteromonas
macleodii (GM 215 hits/sample [0.11%]).
In a similar study in Crassostrea gigas, Vibrio bacteria were detected in the highest abundance, followed by Cytophaga, Alteromonas
, Moraxella and Pseudomonas bacteria (Iida et al., 2000), and Ostrea edulis had abundant V.
