Oregon State Researchers Discover Probiotics Dramatically Increase Oyster Larvae Survival
Probiotics aren't just good for humans -- they also help young oysters survive.
Oregon State University researchers discovered oyster larvae survival rates were significantly boosted by treating them with specific combinations of probiotics.
With only a one-time application, the probiotics also boosted larval growth, metamorphosis and settlement, meaning that in addition to more oysters surviving past the larvae stage, they also fared better at transitioning to juveniles and anchoring to shells and other surfaces.
The findings ...
