Abstract:

25 marine yeasts were used for the study based on their performance in a feeding experiment in Fenneropenaeus indicus. In the present study, the yeast incorporated feeds were found to be giving better performance in terms of various growth parameters in shrimps compared to the control feed. Yeast wise variation could be noted in the performance, which may be due to the variation in the protein, lipid, and carbohydrate and vitamin profile of the yeast biomass. Production (weight gain) was found to be more than twice for some of the yeast diets when compared to the control (free of yeast) and it was found to be significantly different for all the animals fed on yeast diets. The study showed that Candida sake S165, Debaryomyces hansenii S8, Candida utilis S186 and Debaryomyces hansenii S100 supported better growth in prawns compared to other strains. The study showed that marine yeasts can serve as potential feed supplements in aquaculture.
