Abstract:
The present study aimed to assess the effect of dietary Spirulina platensis on some haematological parameters of common carp, Cyprinus carpio var. communis. The trail was conducted for a period of 90 days using 150 fingerlings ofcommon carp with a mean weight of (50g ± 5). Fishes were kept in plastic tubs (80 litre capacity) for a period of 10 days for acclimatization. During this period, the fishes were fed on basal diet. Five experimental diets were used and replacement of fish meal with Spirulina platensis was done @ 0% (T0), 2.5% (T1), 5% (T2), 7.5% (T3) and 10% (T4).The highest mean±S.D value for haemoglobin (mg/dl) was found in treatment group T3 (6.4 ± 0.96) and the lowest mean±S.D for haemoglobin (mg/dl) was observed in control group T0 (4.2 ± 0.57).The highest mean±S.D value for packed cell volume (PCV%) was found in treatment group T3 (19.20 ± 2.89) and the lowest mean±S.D value for packed cell volume (PCV%) was found in control group T0 (12.60 ± 1.71). The highest mean±S.D value for total erythrocyte count (106/mm3) was found in treatment group T3 (3.60 ±0.46) and the lowest mean±S.D value for total erythrocyte count was observed in control group T0 (3.22 ± 0.19).
