Unravelling the gut mucosal-microbiota interplays in salmonid gut during challenging times: the role of dietary modulation to boost fish resistance
In one of the most demanding aquaculture industries in the world, salmonids are frequently exposed to challenging times.
The stability of the gut mucosal-microbiota interface is key for fish resistance and homeostasis, and in this presentation the impact of the suboptimal conditions on this interface will be highlighted.
Here, how functional ingredients modulate the crosstalk between microbiota and intestinal mucosal responses will be discussed, and what are the effects on fish performance. The underpinnings of the microbiota mediated transcriptional modulation of fish responses during stressful periods or diseases outbreaks will be presented and discussed.
