Aquaculture Europe 2013: Novus to present prebiotic findings

Novus will present a scientific abstract entitled, ‘Mode of action and practical applications of the prebiotic Previda to improve fish health’ at the upcoming Aquaculture Europe 2013, Trondheim, Norway - August 9th.

Craig Browdy, Novus Executive Manager, Aquaculture Research, will be making the presentation. The abstract will discuss the results of a series of in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo field and lab tests. In this research the probiotic binded with bacterial binding receptors, which left them inaccessible to pathogens, encouraged selective fermentation allowing beneficial bacteria to completely exclude pathogens, and caused significant improvements in gut ultrastructure. These benefits resulted in a reduction of enteritis and improvement in performance in sensitive marine species.

Previda is a single-source material which has a consistent composition and is of 100% natural origin with no added chemicals. Introduced by Novus in 2011, this breakthrough prebiotic won the 2012 North American New Product Innovation Award for Prebiotics.
