The Application Of Probiotics And Medical Plants As Immunostimulants To Aquaculture In Samatiga Distric, West Aceh Regency
The purpose of this community service was to educate the application of probiotics and
immunostimulants in aquaculture. This activity was carried out in Cot Darat village, Samatiga
District, West Aceh Regency. This activity is divided into three steps, namely: (1) Introduction and
socialization of probiotics and immunostimulant; (2) practice to produce probiotics and the
application techniques; and (3) the monitoring of fish health and growth during cultivation. The type
of bacteria used in this probiotic is Lactobacillus bacteria and the immunostimulant ingredients are
turmeric and curcumin. Lactobacillus, turmeric and curcuma are known can improve fish health in
aquaculture. The results of this activity indicate that group members have understood the definition of
probiotics and immunostimulants, their benefits and how to make and apply them in aquaculture. In
addition, fish health and growth are increase during fish culture compare before the probiotics was
applied. The differences that occurred during probiotics application in fish cultivation were seen that
the fish became healthier, the growth was better, and fish mortality decreased.
