    The present study examined the effect of simulated transport on marron, Cherax cainii, (Austin, 2002) after a 10 week feeding trial using basal diet or customised probiotic, Bacillus mycoides supplemented diet by measuring intestinal bacterial population, total haemocyte count (THC), bacteraemia, morbidity, dehydration and mortality. Packing steps followed the established standard packing method for live transportation of marron. Each treatment group consisted of six polystyrene boxes (65 × 30 × 40 cm3), and each box contained 30 marron from each feeding group. The sealed boxes were placed on a trolley at room temperature to give the effect of transportation. Boxes were opened at 24th and 48th hour post simulated transport and marron from each treatment group were returned to the culture tank. After temperature acclimation, the marron were observed for mor.. Read More»
