Abstract:

Aquaculture plays a vital role in providing sustainable livelihood and food security for the ever increasing population. Accordingly there is expansion, intensification and diversification of aquaculture practices to obtain enhanced production. This has resulted in increased environmental and aquatic animal stress, finally to disease out bursts, reduction in production and threat to sustainability of aquaculture. To control the diseases, an excess of chemical compounds and antibiotics has been applied indiscriminately. The application of these compounds caused many complications and their danger could affect human’s health indirectly. This has led to the development of natural microbiological / acceptable substitutes and growth promoters which are very important and urgent for healthier aquatic animals and sustainability of aqua production and productivity.
