Cultures of the blue green algae (cyanobacteria)Anabaena wisconsinense andOscillatoria curviceps were isolated from fish farms and their antimicrobial effects were studied. Solvent extracts of exponential phase algae were screened for antimicrobial activity against different species of Gram positive (Lactobacillus sp. andBacillus firmus) and Gram negative (Aeromonas hydrophila, Pseudomonas fluorescens andPseudomonas anguilliseptica) bacteria and the fungi (Aspergillus niger andSaprolegnia…

Antimicrobial Activity of the Heterocytous Cyanobacterium Westiellopsis prolifica and Assessment of Its Microcystin–LR Biosynthesis
documented in Egypt; however, our understanding of its diverse biotechnological and biomedical applications remains a limited and challenging topic. In this study, a W. prolifica strain isolated from
EVALUATION OF ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF THE DIFFERENT CULTURE EXTRACTS OF CYANOBACTERIAL SPECIES
TLDR
It is suggested that cyanobacteria used as a potential natural drug sources owing to the antimicrobial efficiency of Anabaena circinalis and Nostoc muscorum and Hapalosiphon welwitschii is suggested.
Survey the Antifungal Effect of Root Ethanolic extract of Ruta graveolens on Saprolegnia. Spp
TLDR
It was shown that root ethanolic extract of Ruta graveolens had antifugnal effects and prevented from saprolegnia growth, so an alternative antifungal agent is needed to be effective and safe.
Successional changes of microalgae community in response to commercial probiotics in the intensive shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei Boone) culture systems
TLDR
The findings imply that the probiotics have potential in the succession, redistribution of beneficial microalgae, inhibit the growth of harmful Cyanobacteria and sustain the MCSs stability in shrimp aquaculture activities.
Production and characterization of antimicrobial active substance from Spirulina platensis
TLDR
The results of this investigation proved that cyanobacteria could be a good source for production of antimicrobial agents which could be effective when compared with contemporary antimicrobial compounds.
Cyanobacterial and microalgal bioactive compounds – the role of secondary metabolites in allelopathic interactions
Abstract Secondary metabolites produced by plants, algae, bacteria and fungi may affect the growth and development of biological systems. This is a natural process which occurs worldwide and is known
Natural antimicrobial compounds for use in aquaculture
TLDR
This chapter reviews the importance of natural antimicrobials, which include active principles from medicinal plants, marine invertebrates, micro- and macro-algae, bacteria, actinobacteria and fungi, which are regarded as an alternative to the use of synthetic drugs/antibiotics.
Effects of a probiotic (Bacillus subtilis FY99‐01) on the bacterial community structure and composition of shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei, Boone) culture water assessed by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis and high‐throughput sequencing
TLDR
Application of probiotics improved the water quality by reducing the levels of pH, nitrite and soluble reactive phosphorus, whereas there was no significant effect on shrimp production, survival rate and FCR, and principle component analysis results indicated that using probiotics also could increase the abundance of beneficial microalgae and decrease the Plenty of Vibrionaceae.
Cyanobacteria: a potential natural source for drug Discovery and bioremediation
TLDR
The developments in biophysical and genetic engineering techniques have made it possible to amplify the production of desired molecules in cyanobacteria which can be used for industrial scale production.

Bioactive compounds from Pseudanabaena species (Cyanobacteria).
TLDR
Bioactive products of the multicellular filamentous benthic cyanobacterium, Pseudanabaena species, isolated from wastewater stabilization ponds at Marrakech, were tested against some pathogenic micro-organisms and antibacterial and antifungal substances had a stronger inhibitory effect than that produced by extracellular substances.
