The Lagoon of Venice is a large water basin that exchanges water with the Northern Adriatic Sea through three large inlets. We examined two adjacent sites within the Southern Basin and at the Chioggia inlet in autumn 2007 and summer 2008. A pilot study in June 2007 on a surface water sample from Chioggia with a rather high salinity of 36.9 PSU had revealed a conspicuous bloom of CF319a-positive cells likely affiliated with the Cytophaga /Flavobacteria cluster of Bacteroidetes. These flavobacterial abundances were one to two orders of magnitude higher than in other marine surface waters. DAPI-stained cells were identified as bacteria with the general bacterial probe mixture EUB338 I-III. CARD-FISH counts with group-specific probes confirmed the dominance of Bacteroidetes (CF319a), Alphaproteobacteria (ALF968), and Gammaproteobacteria (GAM42a). CARD-FISH showed thatBetaproteobacteria and Planctomycetes were minor components of the bacterioplankton in the Lagoon of Venice.
