The economics of fish culture in very important in any study because it shows if the research is cost effective and applicable in terms of the cost implication.

However, the economic indices should be evaluated in this study so that readers of this article will have a clear picture of probiotics application in fish culture such as growth, health status, cost implication, etc.
