It was found that in aquatic environment, there are optimal conditions for growth of Paenibacillus polymyxa KB bacterium. Polymyxobacterin application contributes to an increase of mineral phosphorus in pond water by 1.3-3.7 times compared to the control and does not exceed the normative values (less than 0.5 mgP/dm3) that in its turn stimulates phytoplankton vegetation and zooplankton development. After Polymyxobacterin application, due to development of natural forage organisms, fish productivity of nursery and fattening ponds exceeded the control variant by 3.9 and 6.3% for common carp; by 34.1 and 16.7% for silver carp; and by 5.5 and 9.6 for grass carp, respectively.
