Uniqueness of the Probiotic Method of use/species  Major outcomes References
Arthrobacter XE-7 Nurtured with water (Penaeuschinensis post larvae) -Increased resistance to pathogenicvibrios (V. parahaemolyticus, V.anguillarum and V. nereis)
Improved water quality
Bacillus spp. Through Feed (Prawns) -Bacillusspp able to eliminate luminous vibrio spp. in the mid gut of shrimp
-Act as an inhibitor for Aeromonas hydrophiliaWS1
Bacillus vallismortis W120 Through Feed (Branchinellathailandensis) -Stimulated Phagocytic activity;
-Enhanced both cellular and humoral immune defences;
-Better survival rate;
-Better growth performance;
Bacillus S11 Through Feed additives (Penaeusmonodon) -Improved enzyme activities;
-Decreases the load of Vibrio nigripulchritudo;
-Improved larvae
Survival rate.
(strain MA 18/5M, CNCM)
Through Feed or as water additive. (Litopenaeusstylirostris) -Increased its resistance to Vibrio alginolyticus infection.
-Boosted immune ability
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (strainYC5-8). Mixed the both strains and employed it to culture water (Litopenaeusvannamei) -showing improved survival rate when challenging with pathogens(Vibrio harveyi and V. parahaemolyticus) [33]
Burkholderiacepacia (strain Y02-1). Through Feed (Litopenaeusvannamei) -Improved water quality parameters.
-Improved growth performance and Survival.
-Improved disease resistance against vibrios.
Lactobacillus plantarum Through Feed (Penaeusmonodon Post larvae) -Immune enhancement.
-Water quality improvement.
-Improve nutrient digestibility.
