PROBE Report Summary

Project ID: Q5RS-2000-31457
Funded under: FP5-LIFE QUALITY
Country: Denmark

Establishment of a culture collection of bacteria with inhibitory activity against turbot larval pathogenic bacteria

A collection of over 3000 bacterial isolates from aquatic environments, including adult and larval fish, live feed organisms and rearing systems was available for screening to detect potential probiotic bacteria. Subsequently, the project used the targeted replica plating procedure to isolate antagonistic bacteria directly from turbot larval rearing units.

This resulted in approx. 200 antagonistic strains (from screening more than 20,000 colonies).
