This study evaluated the impact of feeding a commercial diet, top dressed with a commercial probiotic, to Pacific white shrimp in a biofloc-dominated tank system.
The authors evaluated Bacillus bacteria in a pink shrimp nursery and found it controlled Vibrio concentrations as well as a commercial probiotic.
Due to the inherent complexities of field testing, definitive laboratory-based test methods can better quantify probiotic benefits.
Authors tested a commercial probiotic designed to lower stress prior to and during fish transport. Treatment at 10 ppm produced highest survival and growth.
