Probiotic Use in Aquaculture

Conducted out of Hampton University, the “Assessment for viability and microbial composition of commercial probiotic regimens used in aquaculture” study seeks to establish a standard procedure for the future testing of probiotic quality related to disease resistance in farmed fish. Hampton University researchers are testing 9 probiotics in their ability to promote animal health, improve water quality and boost the immune system. The recently approved second phase of research will fund an assessment on the viability of probiotic microorganisms to live and thrive under specific conditions.
