In the last years, the studies about vibrios in marine coastal systems have been increased. This literature revision has been made concerning to the themes of the vibrios and the interaction with bacterioplankton, phytoplankton and upper organisms. Antecedents provided permit to conclude that vibrios are a group of bacteria, with multiple interactions with the other components of the marine ecosystem. Several vibrios species are indispensable to marine organism's survival and subsistence, while others are pathogens. Considering that most of the collected information is related to research of interactions in laboratory conditions and/or quantitative analysis in the water column, future investigations should be focused to understand the molecular mechanisms of the ecology of the vibrios in the marine, pelagic and benthic ecosystem. Besides, to search the potential utilization of vibrios that are beneficial in

the interaction with other marine organisms, elucidating the involved molecules and their action mechanism


Key words: Interaction, bacteria, microalgae
