The taxonomy of the flavobacteria has undergone many changes over the past 10 years and has rapidly expanded in the past five years. This may lead to confusion when deciding on culture media for this group of bacteria. This chapter is organised so that it orientates the reader in terms of the taxonomy of the family and then deals with the media that can be suggested for the isolation, cultivation, maintenance and differentiation of the members of the Flavobacteriaceae family that may be of significance to the food microbiologist. The most useful isolation media for this group of bacteria are nutrient agar, standard plate count agar, trypticase soy agar, Reasoner's 2A medium, marine agar and Anacker and Ordal agar.
