We present the genome sequence of Alishewanella aestuarii B11T (=KCTC 22051T=DSM 19476T). This species, isolated from tidal flat sediment, was reported to be a novel species. A. aestuarii is known to degrade pectin, an important component of plant cell wall. The presence of the genes related to pectin metabolism in this strain indicates its capability to utilize pectin.
