Effect of selected Bacillus sp. on growth of Artemia franciscana

Adv thuysan247

Study the effect of supplementation selective Bacillus sp. on the growth of Artemia fanciscana to improve the efficiency of biomass production of natural food was conducted.


The experiment included 4 treatments and 3 replications; in that (1) the control (no additional bacteria). (2) Additional mix of Bacillus B37 and B41, (3) additional Probiotic Pro-W. (4): additional Probiotic Inter-Pro. The density of additional Bacillus sp. was similar in all treatments (10^6 CFU/mL). Artemia density in culture bottle was 100L ind./500 mL. The results showed that the survival rate of Artemia in additional treatments B37+B41 obatained highest (88%) and was significant difference (p<0.05) compared to control (66.7%) or treatments with Pro-W and Inter-Pro; 72 % and 71.7%, respectively. The length and the number of offsprings/brood in Pro W was highest (11.3 mm, 216 embryos/reproductions) and difference (p<0.05) with B37+B41 (9.4 mm, 209.1 offsprings/brood). Percentage of males in control treatments (37.8%) was higher than in treatments with B37+B41 (31.8%), Inter-Pro (33.5%) and Pro-W (23.7%). Percentage of females in bacterial supplemented treatments was higher than control. Fluctuation of female in the control, Pro W, B37+41and Inter-pro treatment were 61.5%, 76.3%, 68.2% and 66.5%, respectively.
