Clay can make a vase and keep fish from getting sick?

Clay can make a vase – and keep fish from getting sick?

Recently our research team found that kaolin, a type of clay, could protect fish from columnaris disease by binding to the pathogen (Flavobacterium columnare) and preventing its attachment to the gill of fish. We are currently investigating ways to apply these findings to intensive aquaculture settings. One area of focus is to explore the utility of kaolin as a filtration medium to remove pathogenic bacteria from recirculating systems. Allison Sites, a Biological Aide, has developed pelletized formulations of kaolin that are currently being tested for this purpose.
