In shrimp farming, beneficial bacteria are mainly used as probiotics to enhance the growth of shrimp and inhibit the growth of pathogens that may be pests or cause diseases to shrimp populations. The probiotics act through competitive exclusion, where they only target the harmful bacteria while allowing the good bacteria to thrive and enhance the rate of growth and nutritional content of the shrimps. Research has shown that the probiotics are more effective, and are gaining more acceptance than the use of chemical substances and antibiotics in controlling aquatic pests and diseases.
As probiotic bacteria are consumed they produce compounds that are inhibitory toward pathogens, enhance immune response of shrimp, and compete with harmful microorganisms for nutrients and habitat.
Increase Health and Survival
Proper application of ShrimpShield™ creates an immense colony of beneficial and desirable bacteria that dominate the biofloc community and outcompete pathogenic microorganisms through competitive exclusion.
Improve Water Quality
ShrimpShield™ consumes organic waste and uneaten food before they begin to decay. This prevents accumulation of harmful ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate which can become toxic, cause health problems, and are also difficult to remove. An additional benefit of this process is increased feed conversion due to recycling of waste products.
Consuming shrimp that has been raised using probiotics is highly nutritious and has a better taste. Scientific studies have found out that probiotic bacteria increase resistance to enteric infections in shrimp by enhancing immune responses, both cellular and humoral immune defenses. Shrimp raised using probiotics are thus recommended for human consumption as they enhance healthy living.
