Estimation of variations in the haematological and serum-biochemical parameters of Labeo rohita (Hamilton, 1822) fingerlings due to mold infested feed
Rajinder Kaur and Amita Saxena
The effect of mold infested feed on haematological and serum biochemical parameters in the fingerlings of Labeo rohita was investigated. Three different experimental groups were set up as G1 (0% molded feed), G2 (50% mold infested feed and 50% good feed) and G3 (100% mold infested feed) respectively. Fish fed with G2 and G3 diet showed significant (p<0.05) changes in the composition of blood and serum in comparison to the control group G1. Hb content, TEC and TLC count decreased with the increased intake of mold infested feed. Total serum protein, serum glucose and serum creatinine showed a significant decrease with the increase in the time of intake. SGPT and SGOT increased with the progress of experiment till the end. The present study concluded that the mold infested feed negatively affects the fish health.
