Scientific information and studies

Here you will find a collection of interesting references and links to scientific publications and studies about food additives that we use in DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD. 

Of course, this list represents only a small part of the information available on the internet. If you enter the relevant term in a search engine, you will receive numerous other passages on the relevant topics.

Prof. Dr. Leandro Melo de Sousa, Laboratório de Ictiologia de Altamaria, Federal University of Pará (Brasil) to a current study on the effect of nutrition on fertility of Loricaridae L333 (The study will be finished in 2020.)
“We finalized the first part of the experiment comparing 4 different foods. DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD is the one that gives the best results considering sperm quality. The fishes were analyzed in the day 0 and they were all with no viable sperm cells. After 25 days of DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD the fishes presented 90 – 100 % of active sperm cells. The other brands were not so good. Another difference, as we have only few DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD left, we are giving 0.5 % of the fish weight per day, while the other brands up to 2 %. Even in lower quantities DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD presented better results!”

Specialist book:
Gerald Bassleer: The New Illustrated Guide to Fish Diseases
ISBN: 90-807831-2-9
This book is a lavishly-illustrated aid to making the right diagnosis, not only for the aquarium retailer or pond centre, but also for the veterinarian’s or fish doctor’s practice.

Specialist book:
Christian E. W. Steinberg: Aquatic Animal Nutrition
ISBN: 978-3-319-91766-5
The book defines gaps in the nutritional research and practice of farmed fish and invertebrates with reference to knowledge of marine and freshwater biology. It is also pointed out that the pros and cons of nutrition affect several successive generations. This suggests that a well-designed diet may have the potential to successfully improve breeding and breeding efforts.

Diseases are a major threat to the sustainability of the fishing industry. As antibiotics have many disadvantages, it is becoming increasingly important to understand the mechanisms that make nutrition a key factor in the defense against pathogens.
