Freshwater bacterioplankton in the oxygenated hypolimnion are reportedly dominated by specific members that are distinct from those in the epilimnion. However, no consensus exists regarding the ubiquity and abundance of these bacterioplankton, which is necessary to evaluate their ecological importance. The present study investigated the bacterioplankton community in the oxygenated hypolimnia of 10 deep freshwater lakes. Despite the broad geochemical characteristics of the lakes, 16S rRNA gene sequencing demonstrated that many predominant lineages in the hypolimnion were shared by several lakes and consisted of members occurring in the entire water layer and members specific to the hypolimnion. Catalyzed reporter deposition fluorescence in situ hybridization (CARD-FISH) revealed that representative hypolimnion-specific lineages, CL500-11 (Chloroflexi), CL500-3, CL500-37, CL500-15 (Planctomycetes), and the MGI group (Thaumarchaeota), together accounted for 1.5-32.9% of all bacterioplankton in the hypolimnion of the lakes. Furthermore, an analysis of micro-diversification based on single-nucleotide variation in the partial 16S rRNA gene sequence (oligotyping) suggested the presence of hypolimnion-specific ecotypes among the lineages occurring in the entire water layer (e.g., acI and Limnohabitans). Collectively, these results demonstrate the uniqueness, ubiquity, and quantitative significance of bacterioplankton in the oxygenated hypolimnion, motivating future studies to focus on their eco-physiological characteristics.
