In the second Pecha Kucha presentation from the Global Aquaculture Alliance's annual GOAL conference in Dublin, Ireland, Fanny Giudicelli of Marine Akwa talks about how marine probiotics, derived from seaweed, can help the industry's efforts in combatting infectious diseases.
Aquamimicry simulates natural, estuarine production conditions by creating zooplankton blooms as supplemental nutrition to the cultured shrimp, and beneficial bacteria to maintain water quality. Better-quality shrimp can be produced at lower cost and in a more sustainable manner.
Un estudio fue llevado a cabo para medir los efectos de probióticos comerciales en camarón blanco del Pacífico en un modelo de desafío a AHPND estandarizado bajo condiciones controladas de laboratorio. Los resultados muestran que los tratamientos de probióticos por
A study was conducted to measure the effects of commercial probiotics on Pacific white shrimp in a standardized AHPND challenge model under controlled laboratory conditions. Results show that the probiotics treatments by themselves have beneficial effects, such as higher survival
Experiments were conducted to evaluate the potential survival and growth benefits of three multi-strain probiotics in three different stages of juvenile rohu (hatchling to advanced fry). Results showed beneficial effects of the probiotics treatments for the hatchling and fry stages,
The Oceanic Institute of Hawaii Pacific University has been working to develop methods to culture yellow tang, a top species collected for the aquarium trade. The fish under culture are living longer as practices improve.
In early 2014, a trial to evaluate the effects of a mixture of Bacillus strains on early mortality syndrome bacteria during the larviculture and nursery phases for shrimp was carried out at a commercial hatchery in Mexico.
A recent study that evaluated the benefits of using probiotics with a balanced mixture of Bacillus bacteria strains to inhibit pathogenic bacteria in tilapia.
A range of alternative products is available to improve animal health and water quality, and control pathogen loads. Beneficial microbes produce antimicrobial compounds and suppress pathogen proliferation.
