Abstract:

The effect of oral administration of probiotic, biogut on growth, survival, and immuno response and disease resistance against white muscle disease was examined in freshwater prawn, M. rosenbergii. Biogut was administered to prawn through the diet at 1%, 1.5% and 2.0% body weight/day for a period of 90-day in recirculatary rearing system. The prawns were sampled on 90 day and challenged with white muscle disease virus, which is highly potential disease to prawn through injection route at 50 μl / juvenile. The mean weight gain and survival rate of prawn fed biogut group was significantly higher than the control (P< 0.01). The mortality of prawn fed control diet, 1%, 1.5% and 2.0% biogut containing diet was 53.33%, 46.66%, 33.33% and 40% respectively. Phenoloxidase activity and respiratory burst activity of prawn fed control diet, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0% biogut containing diet was 38.0%, 48.70%, 65.0%, 51.70% and 40.0%, 51.30%, 65.0%, 52.70% respectively. These results indicate that the oral administration of biogut to freshwater prawn enhances growth, survival, disease resistance and immuno response against white muscle disease of prawn and they can be recommended for prawn culture.
