Abstract: Shrimp aquaculture represents 5.8 % of the global aquaculture production by weight, and one of the most important aquaculture commodities by value due to it’s high market value. However, during recent years the industry has been severely impacted by disease outbreaks and shrimp losses, including increased antibiotic usage and pathogen virulence. One possible solution to this crisis could be the possible use of microbiological techniques, and in particular the use of probiotics, to displace pathogenic bacteria by competitive processes. This research was undertaken at the Oceanic Institute (Hawaii, USA) with the aim of identifying commercial probiotics which could increase shrimp growth, disease resistance against pathogens, and/or improve the culture environment.
