Biotech company Pebble Labs is harnessing bacteria to block the transmission of virulent shrimp diseases in a process known as RNA interference, or RNAi.
Prof. Boyd discusses the role of bacteria in the biological dynamics of ponds as essential for maintaining proper ecological function and adequate water quality.
The influence of antibiotics in fish and their effects on the gut microbiome aren’t well understood, says research team examining antimicrobial resistance.
Pond microbial communities are a critical and often overlooked component of aquaculture ecosystems. Bacterial amendments like probiotics provide significant support to shrimp farmers around the world.
Los alimentos acuícolas para camarón – vivos, frescos o formulados – no deben ser un punto de entrada de patógenos potenciales para el camarón y/o sus sistemas de cultivo.
Shrimp aquafeeds – live, fresh or formulated – should not be an entry point of potential pathogens to the shrimp and/or to their culture systems.
Strategies to control Vibrio bacteria at aquaculture farms must revolve around limiting inputs, including those from postlarvae suppliers, those that come in with the water, those that remain in the soil between crops and those in the feed and accumulated
Control of Vibrio bacteria should focus on minimizing overall bacterial loads and the potential for horizontal transmission. The challenge for hatchery managers is identifying gaps in biosecurity and plugging them without creating niches for other potential pathogens.
Biological filtration is one of the critical required unit processes in recirculating aquaculture systems. Non-corrosive filter media with large amounts of surface provides area for nitrifying bacteria cells to colonize.
