Microbiome insights: few and far between

Ruben and Jasmine Heyse, PhD candidate at Ghent University discuss the limitations and knowledge gaps in microbial ecology in shrimp aquaculture in the 2019 issue of HatcheryFeed (volume 7, issue 4). They argue that the establishment of effective and sustainable microbial management strategies would be greatly accelerated by increasing our knowledge regarding the microbial ecology of these systems. A concerted effort among both industrial stakeholders, who have access to diverse aquaculture platforms, and academic partners, who have access to the know-how of next-generation technologies, is paramount to revolutionize the fundamental basis on which aquaculture microbiome management must be based.
