The scientific project “The strategy of molecular aquaculture in the development of new synbiotic drugs to improve the health and quality of fish” is being implemented as part of a grant from the Russian Science Foundation for the event “Conducting research by world-class scientific laboratories within the framework of the priorities of scientific and technological development of the Russian Federation” of the Presidential Program of research projects implemented by leading scientists, including young scientists.
Aim of the project – to create a strategy of molecular aquaculture in the development of new synbiotic drugs to improve the health and quality of fish.
– to develop a system of molecular markers for assessing the condition of aquaculture facilities.
– to create a system for monitoring the health of aquaculture facilities using natural mechanisms: probiotics, synbiotics, postbiotics.
– to develop a line of multi-species probiotics for fish fry, allowing them to form a “golden microbiota”, including bacteria with various probiotic properties. The probiotic will include microorganisms with antioxidant, antimutagenic, antimicrobial, biofilm-forming or enzymatic properties. This will allow the fish to form a microbiota with obviously pronounced beneficial properties.
– to develop a line of bacillary probiotics with high enzymatic activity, facilitating the digestion and assimilation of fish feed.
The line will include probiotics for adult fish living in different conditions and having different digestive systems (predatory, herbivorous), as well as for fry at the stage of transition to independent nutrition.
– develop a line of new synbiotic feed additives to improve the health and quality of fish based on molecular aquaculture and expand the range of available feeds.
The scale of the task is provided by species diversity: feed additives for salmon (trout), sturgeon (sturgeon, sterlet, sturgeon hybrids), cyprinid fish and new aquaculture facilities (catfish and tilapia).
The implementation of the project will contribute to the formation of scientific and technological foundations that correspond to the direction of the Strategy of the NTR of the Russian Federation and ensure economic growth and social development of the Russian Federation.
