abstract

  • In aquaculture, traditional methods for treating infective pathogens include a limited number of government approved antibiotics and chemotherapeutics. However, this treatments may cause the accumulation of chemicals in the environment and/or fish., thus posing potential threats to consumers and the environment. The present study was conducted to determine the effects of graded levels of super biobuds (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) on the growth performance and immune responses as well as resistance of cultured Nile Tilapia to infection by Aeromonas hydrophila and Pseudomonas flourescens
