This study aims to isolate symbiotic bacteria with red algae from the waters of Tongkaina, North Sulawesi. The red algae taken were red algae that are similar to the genus Portieria and Gracilaria. Bacteria were cultured and isolated using Nutrient Agar (NA) + sea water. Before bacteria from red algae samples were cultured, each sample of red algae was crushed, homogenized and diluted. The results of this study, 5 bacterial isolates were successfully isolated from red algae similar to Portieria sp. and 5 bacterial isolates from red algae similar to Gracilaria sp. Each bacterial isolate has different morphological characteristics such as shape, colour, elevation, and edges. Of the 10 bacterial isolates, 3 bacterial cells are gram-positive cocci (round), and 7 of them are gram-negative bacilli (rod).
