Probiotic use in aquaculture is increasingly as producers are attempting to improve pond, soil, water quality, enhance survival and improve the growth of candidate species. In the present investigation an attempt has been made to know the effect of different types of probiotics including soil, water and feed probiotics during the culture operation of pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei
. In the present investigation soil, water and feed probiotics selected, super PS, super Biotic and UB Probizyme, respectively used to monitor the growth potentials in prawns. Super PS was broadcasted at the rate of 5 lit/ 0.5 ha, Super biotic i.e. 5kg/ 0.5 ha and UB Probizyme at the rate of 10 g/ 1 kg feed were applied by following the manufactures instructions. The results showed that probiotics plays an important role in maintaining water quality parameters, soil quality and health management as well as increase the growth and survival of shrimp. Probiotic treatment offers a promising alternative to the use of antibiotics in prawn culture activity.Pages: 07-14 | 877 Views 90 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
