Probiotics in Yellow Perch and Tilapia Culture

Project

Description

The eleventh Aquaculture Drugs funded project was chaired by Konrad Dabrowski.

Objectives:

  1. Characterize the microbial community of early ontogeny of yellow perch and tilapia during grow out phase in control (laboratory) setting and compare to practical industry conditions (minimum of 2 farms for each species).
  2. Isolate bacteria that possess the characteristics resulting in inhibition of pathogenic Vibrio and Aeromonas species.
  3. Compare commercial probiotics to those isolates identified in Objective 2.
  4. Establish culture of axenic fish model to evaluate probiotics and inoculants which possess disease inhibition.
