This study clarifies the effect of green water from Chlorella sp., Tilapia hornorum and the combination of the two organisms on the growth of luminous bacteria in a simulated shrimp culture environment. Results showed that the presence of Chlorella sp. (105 cells/ml) alone was not effective in the control of luminous bacteria in shrimp (biomass=80 g/m3) rearing water. The presence of T. hornorum alone (biomass=500 g/m3) was more efficient in controlling the growth of luminous bacteria than the co-existence of tilapia and Chlorella sp. Nevertheless, the presumptive Vibrio count was lowest in control tanks that had the highest shrimp survival rate, which was attributed to the presence of other micro-algae such as Chaetoceros, Thalassiosira, Navicula, Nitszchia, Melosira, and Fragilaria.

Tendencia, Eleonor ; dela Peña, Milagros R.; Fermin, Armando C.; Lio-Po, Gilda; Choresca Jr., Casiano H.; Inui, Yasuo (Elsevier, 2004)Disease due to luminous Vibrio has been a major problem of the shrimp industry. Different technologies have been introduced to control the disease. One of the techniques reported to work against luminous bacteria in the ...
Anti-luminous Vibrio factors associated with the ‘green water’ grow-out culture of the tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon Lio-Po, Gilda D.; Leaño, Eduardo M.; Peñaranda, Ma. Michelle D.; Villa-Franco, Annie U.; Sombito, Christopher D.; Guanzon Jr., Nicholas G. (Elsevier, 2005)The ability of the “green water” grow-out culture of the tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon to prevent outbreaks of Luminous Vibriosis was investigated by screening associated isolates of bacteria, fungi, phytoplankton and fish ...
Effect of iodine disinfection on the bacterial flora and hatching rate of grouper, Epinephelus coioides eggs at the cleavage and eyed stages In this study, the effect of iodine disinfection on the bacterial flora and hatching rate of grouper egg at two different stages of development were investigated. The eggs (at cleavage and eyed stages) were soaked for 10 ...
