Although widely used in aquaculture applications, some synthetic polymer liners can release toxic substances into culture water and affect animal health.
Biosecurity in shrimp aquaculture is achieved by preventing the presence, growth, and spread of pathogenic microorganisms.
Excess nutrients from poor feeding regimes result in accumulated sludge on the bottoms of shrimp ponds, harming the environment and animal health.
An aquaculture probiotic is a bacterial supplement to manipulate microbial communities in the water and to improve growth and survival of the cultured species.
The design and operation of biofilters is multidisciplinary, involving mechanical engineering, microbial ecology and aquaculture husbandry.
Shrimp are the most commercially important aquaculture animals that utilize a significant amount of microorganisms in their diet.
