Know More About Probiotics in Aquaculture

Aquaculture today one of the chief contributors to global food production. Statistics also suggest aquaculture to be the highest growing sector than other food production systems. To be at par with the demand, aquaculture production practices have intensified over the year. The utilization of antibiotics to boost up the production has proved to be a major concern as around 70-80% antibiotics used for this purpose are for humans. This not only leads to the deterioration of the water bodies but also creates an imbalance in the gut microbiota which in turn reduces the natural immunity of the bred fish. This will end up as a potential risk to the health of consumers.

Probiotics are living microbial cells that help inprove the natural immunity level as well as positively impacts fish growth and reproduction.

Probiotics in aquaculture can eradicate the dependence on antibiotics focusing more on maintaining and improving the quality of the rearing environment and protecting the fishes from biological hazards. The use of probiotics that can drive sustainable aquaculture practices.

Probiotics in aquaculture facilitate the production of enzymes for better digestion and also modulates the immune system to fight the pathogenic bacteria. It colonizes the gut inhibiting the colonization of pathogenic bacteria. The probiotic organisms consume all the necessary nutrients leaving nothing for the pathogens to live on.

It is also necessary to use appropriate probiotics for fish in aquaculture depending on the fish species and size. A probiotic can be added alone or in a combination for a particular species.

The advantages of probiotics for fish in aquaculture prove them to be the right alternative to the use of antibiotics and chemicals. We at Organica Biotech are your game changers and our range of probiotics are an intricate interplay of microbes and enzymes that enhance the rearing conditions and also boost the health and growth rate. Our solutions can be applied to the farming of shrimp, shellfish, fish and aquatic plants. Our designed-for-application formulation inhibits algal bloom and facilitates the rapid degradation of ammonia and other organic waste.

Our Range of Aquaculture Products include:

  • BioClean® Aqua: BioClean® Aqua bioremediates the pond of tiger shrimps by accelerating the decomposition of organic compounds preventing the accumulation of ammonia and hydrogen sulphide.
  • BioClean® Aqua Plus: Penaeus vannamei are stocked and cultured in very high densities in ponds and tanks. BioClean Aqua Plus acts as a boost to their increasing densities by creating a sustainable environment and preventing the spread of pathogenic bacteria.

  • Biogut Aqua: It is a probiotic in aquaculture contains friendly microbes promoting rapid digestion of food in aquatic animals. It also increases immunity.
  • BioClean® Aqua Fish: BioClean® Aqua Fish reduces the dissolved level of nitrates and phosphates, improving the quality of the water in the fish ponds which in return will boost the fish size and promote healthy gills.
  • Bioflok: Bioflok is helpful in enhanced floc formation within 3-4 days. It leads to increased body weight of fish and shrimp and also maintaining the water quality.

Our range of Probiotics in aquaculture is certified antibiotic-free by the Coastal Aquaculture Authority -India.

FAQ

What is the importance of probiotics in aquaculture.

 Aqua probiotis are beneficial bacteria that are commonly added to aquaculture systems in order to help support health, performance and growth. They degrade the organic matter in the fish pond to improve the environment of aquaculture systems thereby reducing the toxicity levels in the ponds. This helps in healthy growth of the fish and shrimps.

What is FCR ratio?

 Feed conversion ratio (FCR) is calculated from the number of kilograms of feed used to produce one kilogram of fish. The average FCR for farmed fish is close to 1:1. Choosing right type of the probiotic for fish farming contributes in enhanced FCR at greater extent. You can check our Aquafish probiotics for fish farming, Bioclean Aqua or tiger shrimp farming, Bioclean Aqua plus for vennamei shrimp farming Bioflok for Bioflok systems.

How to maintain the gut health of the fish?

Use of probiotic is the best way to maintain the gut health of the fish and stay away from diseases like white gut disease. It helps in maintaining the microfauna balance in the intestine of shrimps and fish. Certain conditions like external stress, antibiotic treatment, high stocking density, low DO levels etc, adversely affect the microbes present in the intestinal niche. This in turn reduces the beneficial, health-promoting bacteria. You can check out BioGut Aqua which ameliorates the overall health of shrimps and fish and induces proper molting cycle in fish and shrimps.

How to prevent increase in ammonia levels?

Ammonia is a naturally occurring chemical in your fish farming pond created by the breakdown of waste/sludge i.e. fish food and excrement and plants. It can be treated by using right type of probiotics which consists of beneficial bacteria that breakdowns the ammonia through the process of nitrogen cycle. Bioclean Aqua fish  is one such probiotic which can be used to lower the ammonia levels and in the fish farming ponds.

What is the use of probiotics in aquaculture?

Probiotics are living microbial cells. They were initially used for disease control. Use of probioticss in aquaculture has now extended to improving fish growth and reproduction through addition to the body of water or feed. Probiotics function by acting as nutrient sources, providing enzymes for better digestion, modulating the immune system of fish and increasing the immune response against pathogenic bacteria. Feeding  adequate amounts of microbes to the aquatics animals modify their gut microflora and replace harmful microbes with beneficial ones. This improves the health and growth of the fish.

Is it safe to use probiotics for fish?

Probiotics have the potential to improve immune status as well as performance of farmed fish. Most of these probiotics for fish are isolated from nature. Hence are completely safe and free of pathogenecity. While selecting probiotics for fish, it is recommended to always check for the GRAS certification.

How can we use probiotics for fish farming?

Fish Probiotics contain one or more live microorganisms, which have been introduced to improve the cultivation of aquatic organisms. Probiotics for fish can be used as a food additive added directly to the culture tank or mixed with food. These are often dosed in specific time intervals to ensure the required population of good bacteria in aqua ponds or tanks.
