  • 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… CONTINUE READING
