Project description

Bacteria with documented positive characteristics, isolated from fish larvae, will be used to formulate mixtures. The modes-of-action of these mixtures will be unravelled in standardised, gnotobiotic test models. Their action against opportunitic pathogenic bacteria in early stages of turbot will be tested in open and closed recirculation cultures.
