Remove of Three Pathogenic Bacteria in Cultured Fish and Tetracycline Antibiotics Using Underwater Non-Thermal Dielectric Barrier Discharge Plasma 



    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of underwater non-thermal dielectric barrier discharge plasma (DBD plasma) on the sterilization of three types of pathogenic bacteria that cause diseases in freshwater fish and the reduction of a tetracycline antibiotics. This experiment was conducted in the DBD plasma generator, and the voltages used to generate plasma were 11.6 kV and 23.1 kV. The measurement intervals were 0, 1, 5, 10 and 15 min. As a result of DBD plasma treatment, Aeromonas hydrophila, Edwardsiella tarda and Pseudomonas fluorescens were removed 93-99% after 5 min at 23.1 kV, and the tetracycline antibiotics were reduced 70-95% after 15 min at 23.1 kV. In this study, as a result of treating the effluent with DBD plasma at a fish farm where the medicinal bath was conducted with oxytetracycline-HCl (OTC-HCl) products, OTC-HCl decreased by 62% after 10 min at 23.1 kV.
