Evaluation of growth and metabolism of Labeo rohita (Hamilton, 1822) fingerlings with Aloe vera supplementation diet

Karni Bishnoi, ML Ojha, VP Saini and SK Sharma

The role of Aloe vera as fish diet supplement on growth and metabolism of Labeo rohita was evaluated. For this purpose six graded levels {0(D1), 100(D2), 200(D3), 400(D4), 600(D5) and 800(D6) g/kg)} of Aloe vera pulp were mixed in basal diet and fed (@ 4% of body weight per day) to experimental fish for a total period of 60 days. The supplementation of Aloe vera had significant impact on fish growth. The highest weight gain (60.410±0.996g), percent weight gain (275.700±14.683%), SGR (2.203±0.066%) and GCE (0.579±0.011) were recorded in D4. The fishes fed with D4 have also indicated better food utilization with lesser food conservation ratio (FCR) i.e. 1.726±0.032 as compared to other treatments. Similarly, the higher value of Amylase activity (27.480±0.068), Protease (28.456±0.255) and Lipase (0.6333±0.015) were also recorded in D4. Therefore, it can be concluded that Aloe vera @400g/kg diet had significant role in improving rohu growth and metabolism.
