Probiotic bacteria are a boon for aquaculture and are highly useful for the prevention of various infectious diseases. They can be used as an alternative to antimicrobials and antibiotics. Probiotics enhance the immune system of fishes and also increase the growth of fishes. They not only promote growth of fish but also help in heavy metal removal. Probiotics can be isolated from various sources but the best source of probiotic in case of fish, is the gut of fish itself. Putative probiotics come from the same source as the organism who consumes them. Putative probiotics are already adapted to the environment of gut of fish and can thrive well inside the gastrointestinal tract of fish. Probiotics can be profitable to the fish farmers if they are used in place of commercial antibiotics and antimicrobials as they may cause the resistance against bacterial species when used in excess..
