Microorganisms are of major important in aquaculture and industrial wastewater treatment. They reside in the sediment and other substrates, and in the water of aquaculture facilities, as well as in and on the cultured species. Microorganisms may have positive or negative effects on the outcome of aquaculture operations. Positive microbial activities include elimination of toxic materials such as ammonia, nitrite, and hydrogen sulfide, degradation of uneaten feed, and nutrition of aquatic animals such as shrimp, fish; production of aqua-farmer. These and other functions make microorganisms key players in the health and sustainability of aquaculture. Yet, microorganisms are among the least known and understood elements in aquaculture, Like other areas in aquaculture, microorganisms require management and Manipulation.
