- Foodstuffs > Case Study: PESCANOVA

Goal:
Discovery of marine micro-organisms with probiotic properties for farming king prawns.

Development:
Study of part of the collection previously selected by Biomar for its activity and absence of toxicity. The criteria established were to improve resistance to infections and the possibility of incorporating the products into animal feed. Fish tanks were installed for the validation of the effectiveness of the products in a controlled setting.

Results:
Two possible probiotics were selected as complying with the requirements of activity and thermal resistance. They are pending evaluation in fish tanks.
