<b>Dietary mannan oligosaccharide and <i>Bacillus subtilis</i> in diets for Nile tilapia (<i>Oreochromis niloticus</i>)

Abstract: A six week study was conducted to investigate the supplementation of prebiotic (Mannan oligosaccharide-MOS, from yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae), probiotic (Bacillus subtilis-BS, C-3102 strain) and their combination in diets for Nile tilapia. 192 fishes (4.03 ± 0.28 g) were distributed into 16 tanks (40-L), in a completely randomized design (n=4). The following treatments were evaluated: control; prebiotic-2 g MOS kg-1 ; probiotic-2 g BS kg-1 and synbiotic-1 g MOS kg-1 plus 1 g BS kg-1. Fishes fed diets pre-, … Show more

“…The mixture was formed as pellets with a 2 mm diameter, adjusted to the mouth size of the catfish fingerlings, and then dried at room temperature. Next, S. cerevisiae was diluted in 100 ml water for 1 kg feed (de Azevedo et al, 2016). Saccharomyces cerevisiae suspension was put in the sprayer bottle and then sprayed on an experimental feed containing Cr 2 O 3 .…”

“…Due to the inefficiency of feed to support growth, the enrichment of the commercial feed with yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is urgently needed. The yeast (S. cerevisiae) could boost digestive enzyme activities; therefore, it increased the breakdown of complex nutrients into simpler forms to be easily absorbed in the digestive tract (de Azevedo et al, 2016). Sitohang et al (2012) stated that S. cerevisiae produced metabolic products, including amylase and peptidase proteolytic.…”

“…Among the most commonly utilized probiotics, the genus Bacillus is extensively used as a feed supplement in aquaculture and has been proved to enhance the growth performance and health of farmed fish (Akhter et al, ; Azevedo et al, ). However, no information is available on the applications of their thermotolerant counterparts in aquaculture sector.…”

“…Similar results have also been reported in hybrid tilapia (Genc, Yilmaz, Genc, & Aktas, ) and rainbow trout (Bagheri, Hedayati, Yavari, Alizade, & Farzanfar, ) fed bacterial‐supplemented diets. This suggests that dietary probiotic supplementation may have improved digestion and absorption of amino acids and fatty acids (Azevedo et al, ).…”
