Default Tool to identify 16s rRNA fragments in raw data

Hello,
I have metagenome data samples in FASTA format downloaded from EBI and CAMERA. I wanted to extract 16s rRNA fragments from this FASTA file. Can anybody tell me how exactly to go about doing this? I am new to this and have very little guidance.

I did look at Metaxa http://microbiology.se/software/metaxa/
However, the software requires a profile of bacterial and archeal organisms. How do I obtain this?

Thank you for your time!
