Gut microbiome

Little is known about the influence of microbiome on fish physiology, but it is clear that rainbow trout has a stable “core microbiome” especially in the intestine, and this is functional to maintain the immune system and digestive efficiency. A health intestine can contribute positively to a health environment inside the tanks, increasing the environmental sustainability of the production. The effect of a MO-enriched diet in comparison to a Fish Oil and Vegetable Oil will have on perturbing/riequilibrating the fish microbiota is monitored by High Throughput Sequencing (HTS) techniques.
