The impact of bacteria-bacteria and host-bacteria signaling on larviculture of giant freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii

The giant freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii is a commercially important freshwater aquaculture species. In this study we investigate the impact of inhibition of bacterial cell-to-cell communication and interference with sensing of host stress hormones on bacterial disease in Macrobrachium. These strategies could be a valid and sustainable alternative to the use of antibiotics.
