Microbial probiotics for better fish survival and growth of Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer)Author(s):
Shanmugaarasu Venkatachalam and Kathiresan KandasamyAbstract:
Survival and biomass production in seabass (Lates calcarifer
) was assessed under different combinations of microbial mixtures of Bacillus fluxus
, yeast and Spirulina
by using the statistical approach of response surface methodology (RSM).
The fish biomass was 16% higher in probitoics mixture of bacillus (1.89 g/kg), yeast (2.77 g/kg) and Spirulina (5.27g/kg) than that fed with commercial feed alone. This work reiterated the potential of probiotics in better fish survival and growth of Lates calcarifer
and the use of RSM in determining optimal probiotic mixtures.Pages: 129-135 | 634 Views 26 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
