Hirschia baltica is a yellow-pigmented, hyphal, budding bacteria. Strain IFAM 1418 (ATCC 49814) was isolated from the top 5cm of water in Kiel Fjord on the Baltic Sea, Germany in October 1982 and is the type strain for this species. It prefers brackish water and grows optimally between 22 and 29 degrees Celsius. Cells (without hyphae) are 0.5 to 1.0 by 0.5 to 6.0 um and are rod shaped, elliptical, or ovoid. The hyphae have a diameter of about 0.2 um. It can use a number of sugars, organic and amino acids as carbon sources including glucose, acetate, lactate, pyruvate, alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, glutamine, isoleucine, proline, and gluconate. It cannot grow on lactose, xylose, raffinose, ribose, ethanol, glycerol, mannitol, methanol, methylammonium chloride, formamide, citrate, fumarate, malate, glycine, histidine, lysine, or valine among others. Nitrogen sources are ammonia, glutamic acid, nitrate, and urea, and it can produce ammonia from peptone (adapted from PMID 2275859).
