About Microbial Aquaculture Applications

Probiotic bacteria serves as a microbial control agent in aquatic farming settings.

Some of the main benefits of using beneficial bacteria in this setting include:

  • Production of compounds that are inhibitory toward pathogens

  • Enhancement of the immune response of the animal

  • Production of beneficial metabolites

  • Improvement of water quality

  • Positive interaction with phytoplankton

The wide use of antibiotics has resulted in biological and ecological concerns - especially the emergence of antibiotic resistance. In light of these concerns, beneficial microbes are an effective and eco-friendly alternative to antibiotics.

Unlike some disease control alternatives being adapted and proposed in aquaculture, the use of probiotics provides benefits to the host animal and the surrounding environment.
