Zobellia sp. strain OII3 was isolated from a marine environmental sample due to its heterotrophic lifestyle, i.e., using Escherichia coli cells as prey. It shows strong agar-lytic activity. The genome was assembled into 41 contigs with a total size of 5.4 Mb, revealing the genetic basis for natural product biosynthesis.
