Assessment of seasonal change in cholesterol level of amur common carp associated with reproduction in different age groups
The present investigation was conducted to study the correlation of reproductive profile with biochemical parameters cholesterol (CHO) in blood plasma, muscle, gonadal and hepatic tissues in 1+ and 2+ year’s age groups of Amur common carp, Cyprinus carpio haematopterus in Tarai region of Uttarakhand. Water quality parameters were recorded on seasonal basis. Sampling for 1+ and 2+ year’s age groups were carried out in four different seasons – summer (July), autumn (October), winter (January) and spring (March). CHO level showed an increasing trend from the initial detection in summer until winter season. Comparison of physiological profiles in 1+ and 2+ year’s age groups of Amur common carp revealed two major peak periods - spring season and summer season. There was inverse correlation of GSI and HSI in all seasons irrespective of age and sex. The biochemical changes showed significant positive correlation with GSI. The changed in CHO levels were observed to be of higher amplitude in 2+ year’s age group specimens than 1+ year’s age group except HSI. Based on the present study, it may be inferred that seasonal changes biochemical parameters (CHO) have a profound effect on the scale of reproductive success of Amur common carp, Cyprinus carpio haematopterus, during spring and summer seasons and 2+ year’s age group showed better reproductive potential.
