Scholarcy highlights

  • According to FAO, the aquaculture industry is the fastest food producing sector, and has significantly contributed to provide high quality and affordable protein source worldwide
  • The aims of the present investigation were to evaluate the effects of orange peels derived pectin singular or combined with L. plantarum on skin mucusand serum immune parameters, disease resistance against Streptococcus agalactiae and growth performance of Nile tilapia cultured under indoor biofloc condition
  • Temperature was maintained at 29 ± 0.51 °C, and dissolve oxygen was kept above 6.5 ± 0.14 mg L−1. pH varied from 7.85 ± 0.19, and total ammonia was in range of 0.79 ± 0.11 mg L−1
  • As only one study has been performed to identify the beneficial effects of prebiotics and probiotics on biofloc based aquaculture, the aims of the present study were to evaluate effects of orange peels derived pectin singular or combined with Lactobacillus plantarum CR1T5 on skin mucus- and serum immune parameters, disease resistance against S. agalactiae and growth performance of Nile tilapia cultured under indoor biofloc condition
  • The present study revealed that dietary administration of OPDP significantly enhanced skin mucus and serum immunity, disease resistance, and growth performance of Nile tilapia cultured under biofloc system
  • The results of present study indicated that dietary administration of Lactobacillus plantarum CR1T5 significantly increased growth performance, mucosal and serum immunity, as well as disease resistance against S. agalactiae of Nile tilapia
