Resumen

GONZALEZ-LEON, Liane Mary; RIZO PORRO, Mariela  y  ARENAL CRUZ, Amílcar. Bacillus firmus: Applications and Potentialities as a Probiotic for Aquaculture. Rev. prod. anim. [online]. 2022, vol.34, n.2, pp.1-12.  Epub 30-Ago-2022. ISSN 2224-7920.

Background:

Nowadays, numerous bacterial strains, genus Bacillus, are used as probiotics to promote the growth of cultivated aquatic organisms, particularly in their larval stages.

Aim.

To conduct a review of the different applications of Bacillus firmus in the industry, with emphasis on their use as a probiotic for aquaculture.

Development:

B. firmus is a widely used beneficial bacterium as a nematicide to protect crops, the bioremediation of contaminated environments, enzyme production, and as a probiotic for aquaculture. Its potentiality for shrimp culture is outstanding for controlling diseases and water quality management in the pond.

Conclusions:

Nevertheless, its specific mechanisms for shrimp culture have not been studied broadly, which is particularly interested in providing all the benefits that this bacterium offers to this economic sector.

Palabras clave : bacterium; shrimp; culture; probiotics.
