Modulating shrimp microbiota in and out white paper
Modulating shrimp microbiota in and out
As the shrimp gut, pond water and sediment represent important microbial ecosystems that will have a big impact on shrimp health and performance. The advancement of molecular biology techniques allows a better understanding of the composition and how to positively modulate these microbial populations.
Discover in this 7-page white paper how these new techniques help answer practical questions about shrimp farming.
What will you find inside this white paper?
The evolution of shrimp gut microbiota and the influence of the pond and tank microbiome
The impact of water microbiome on shrimp in hatchery and nursery
How to track and detect the effect of beneficial bacteria added in the water and in the shrimp

Microbial populations play key roles in the performance of shrimp farming systems. The main microbial components are the water, the soil, and the shrimp gut microbiota. What is the composition of these microbial populations? What is their influence on the environment and the animal’s biotic and abiotic parameters? In-feed probiotics and bioremediation solutions can target the modulation of gut and water microbiota, respectively, to secure improved shrimp farming outcomes. What is their real impact on these microbial ecosystems?
Answering these questions was, until recent years, very difficult because 98 to 99% of the total bacteria in aquatic animals are uncultivable in the lab (Ringø et al., 2016). Today, the advancement of OMICS techniques allows a better understanding of the shrimp environment and gut microbiota. In the following experiments, these novel techniques helped researchers understand how to positively modulate water and gut microbial populations and to answer practical questions often asked by shrimp farmers in hatcheries and nurseries.
