Intensification of medicine on shrimp culture


Author(s): Arup Kar, Sushil Bera and Subhajit Santra

Abstract: Shrimp farming is an aquaculture business for the cultivation of marine shrimps or prawns for human consumption and is now considered a major economic and food production sector as it is an increasingly important source of protein available for human consumption. The intensification of shrimp farming had led to the development of many diseases, which resulted in the excessive use of antimicrobial agents, which is finally responsible for any adverse effects. Currently, probiotics are chosen as the best alternatives to these antimicrobial agents and they act as natural immune enhancers, which provoke disease resistance in a shrimp farm. Exploiting these probiotics in treating and preventing viral diseases in shrimp aquaculture is a novel and efficient method.
