(PDF) Probiotics as alternative control measures in shrimp aquaculture
The effect of a probiotic mixture (Proteobacteria–Firmicutes) on the immune and physiological responses of Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei reared at commercial scale was evaluated.
Origin of probiotics and efficacy of strains explored in shrimp focused
“As there is no data available, therefore, this study was aimed to investigate the influence of commercial and indigenous probiotic sources of these two mentioned Bacillus species on the growth performance, immunophysiological variables, and stress tolerance in white shrimp, L. vannamei,” the researchers said.
Prebiotic use in feed may boost shrimp survival
Although there have been studies examining the use of probiotics in biofloc systems, none have tracked the use of prebiotics in feed for shrimp raised in a biofloc system, and no work with mannoproteins (MP) in shrimp feed has been done, the researchers said.
Functional Feed Assessment on Litopenaeus vannamei Using 100% Fish Meal
Probiotic bacteria are frequently used as feed additives to farm and pet animals. In shrimp feeds, the probiotic bacteria can facilitate digestion of protein constituents and carbohydrates, because the enzymes produced by the bacteria can complement the shrimp enzyme activity, increasing food digestibility.
Probiotics in Shrimp Aquaculture – BioAqua
Shrimp ranks as the most favorite seafood among US consumers, and more than half of the shrimp in the market are coming from aquaculture. After decades of impressive growth, global shrimp aquaculture production in 2012 reached 3.78 million tons. However, catastrophic disease outbreaks have hindered the growing pace of the shrimp industry from time to […]

use of probiotics in shrimp aquaculture | Pathogens and Disease
Feeding and new practices in farming usually play an important role in aquaculture, and the addition of various additives to a balanced feed formula to achieve better growth is a common practice of many fish and shrimp feed manufacturers and farmers. Probiotics, as ‘bio-friendly agents’ such as lactic acid bacteria and Bacillus spp., can be
Probiotics and Shrimp Farming - Shrimp News Home Page
Probiotics and Shrimp Farming . This discussion, which occurred on the Shrimp List during the last quarter of 2004, broadly defines “probiotics” as live bacterial supplements that improve animal health. They are used in shrimp feeds, hatcheries and growout ponds.
Use of Probiotics in Aquaculture - PubMed Central (PMC)
The growth of aquaculture as an industry has accelerated over the past decades; this has resulted in environmental damages and low productivity of various crops. The need for increased disease resistance, growth of aquatic organisms, and feed efficiency has brought about the use of probiotics in aquaculture practices.
