Aquaculture is viewed as an important food security sector for a growing global human population and has rapidly developed due to intensified culture methods. The indiscriminate use of chemical additives and veterinary medicines as preventative and curative measures for diseases has resulted in antimicrobial resistance among pathogenic bacteria, and degraded environmental conditions. Consequently, serious loss because of the spread of diseases has been increasingly recorded. This is a significant constraint on aquaculture production and trade, and negatively affects economic development in many countries. Several alternative methods have been considered to improve the quality and sustainability of aquaculture production. Of those methods, probiotics have been shown to have an important role in aquaculture.

Probiotics have been proven to be positive promoters of aquatic animal growth, survival and health by ensuring improved use of the feed or increasing its nutritional value, or by enhancing the host response towards disease. Apart from these direct effects,the indirect or environmental effects include water quality improvement, reduction of water exchange and sludge accumulation. All of these have a synergist impact on the financial performance of the farm.
