From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Copiotrophic organisms tend to be found in environments which are rich in nutrients, particularly carbon, and are the opposite to oligotrophs which survive in much lower carbon concentrations.

Can grow in high organic substrate conditions, for example, sewage lagoons. Grow in organic substrate conditions up to 100x higher than oligotrophs.
