Dr. Gede Suantika

Aquaculture Science and Technology

Dr. Gede Suantika is a lecturer with expertise in aquaculture science and technology. Before taking part in Microbiology, SITH-ITB, Dr. Gede obtained his BSc and MSc in Biology, ITB, followed by PhD in aquaculture science from Ghent University, Belgium.

His research focused on the development of technological design and implementation of closed and zero-discharged water system for high-economic potential of fishery commodities, such as Giant Fresh Prawn, by studying and taking the benefit of natural interaction between microorganisms in aquatic ecosystems (i.e nitrifying bacteria, microalgae).

  1. Development of Recirculate aquaculture system (RAS)
  2. Biofilter development using nitrifying bacteria
  3. Microbial community stability studies in RAS
  4. Aeromonas and Vibriosis syndrome control in RAS
  5. Microalgae growth promotion through microbial manipulation
